Red Rock Books is located near the downtown area of the high desert city of Ridgecrest, CA on Ridgecrest Blvd.

We have over 7,000 square feet of used and new books, unique gifts, comfy seating, an official feline greeter, a children’s area, and a welcoming atmosphere that encourages customers to take their time and make themselves at home.

We are happy to order anything that we don’t have in stock and are capable of ordering both new and used books, as well as music, movies, gifts, and pretty much anything else that a customer requests.

We are open 7 days a week and are typically only closed on New Years Day, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

We proudly serve the community by selling tickets to various events for many different community organizations, including Burroughs High School Drama, CLOTA, Ridgecrest Chamber of Commerce, Desert Community Orchestra Assocation, Ridgecrest Musical Enrichment Society, IWV Concert Association, Ridgecrest Chamber Music Society, Master Mystery Productions and more. We are happy to be the “box office” of the high desert!


Red Rock Books stocks an enormous variety of both used and new books. We specialize in used books and have a much larger selection of used books than new books, but we are happy to order anything that we don’t have in stock. We offer a great selection of fiction including mystery, western, horror, romance, science fiction and fantasy, and general fiction, all in both hardcover and paperback. We also have an enormous variety of non-fiction including cook books, history, biographies, sciences, religion, self-help, psychology, reference and more.
We carry an expansive selection of local interest books, including books about mining, the desert, the Sierra Nevada, Death Valley, and the surrounding areas and their history.


In addition to books, we carry all sorts of interesting gifts and unusual odds and ends. We have Wildberry Incense, greeting cards, literary themed shirts and socks by Out of Print, toys and activity sets by Melissa and Doug, locally made soap and toiletries by 1883. We also carry Gypsy Rose purses and totes, journals, book lights, Magnetic Poetry, The Naked Bee, Anne Taintor, Blackwing Pencils and so much more.
