People Are Always Talking About Us.

Indie Bob visited our store in the summer of 2018 and wrote a very flattering review. See it here:  http://theindiebobspot.blogspot.com/2018/09/the-homer bookstore-homer-ak.html
 "If you're in Homer and haven't been here yet (unbelievable!), good grief get with it. Visit a legendary bookstore

worthy of national recognition and the super people who work there."  - Indie Bob -

"The Homer Bookstore, sells new books to what's obviously a more intellectually demanding market than most.

The selection is phenomenal." Review from: The Lonely Planet Travel Guide, Alaska, 2009

The Crew

Jenny Stroyeck, Partner

Jenny came to Homer with a background in book-selling and archaeology. She was a former manager from the Alaskan Book Cache chain.


When Jenny isn't at the bookstore, she is either knitting, or skiing, or playing tennis, or marimba, or creating small works of art.


She is also the calming voice of reason who keeps the other two partners from throwing books at each other.

She is married to Michael Armstrong, local writer and science-fiction author.


Sue Post, Partner

Sue has worked in bookstores off-and-on since she was fourteen; starting as an indentured servant at The Bookstore. She can do it all - except she hasn't yet mastered working in her sleep.

When Sue isn't fixing her brother's computer mistakes at the store, she is either horseback riding, or skiing, or teaching puppy classes, or kayaking, or playing marimba.


She is married to Jim Levine, an engineer who works as a project manager for a local contractor.

Lee Post, Partner

Lee is closely related to Sue - in that they share the same parents. Lee has been a Homer Bookstore partner since the late 1970s. They keep him around because he comes in handy when things break. Sometimes he sells books.


When Lee isn't arguing with the computer at work, he is likely to either be working with animal bones, chasing birds, or kayaking. 


He is married to Mary Post, a computer addict, co-publisher of Lee's Bone Building Books (www.theboneman.com), and web designer.
