Checkmate!

Since The Queen’s Gambit started airing on Netflix last October, we’ve been inundated with requests for chess books (and for books by author Walter Tevis, but that’s for another blog). It was probably a perfect storm of timing and quality: superb story and production + folks stuck at home during lockdown = renewed interest in one of the greatest games of all time.

Before the remarkable series debuted, we had several shelves worth of chess books. Now, two-and-a-half months later, that section has been considerably reduced, but there are still many excellent books to be found in our Chess section (which is located near the main sales counter). Here is a brief sampling (click the “BUY NOW” at the bottom of any image for more information or to purchase):

If you’re looking for a particular book on chess, please feel free to call (818-509-2665) or write us – we just might have it on our shelves.
