What does the Miracle Mile Book­store, Doors Book Re­cy­clery and Mr. Otto’s Book­store have com­mon?

All three are in­de­pen­dent­ly­owned book stores along Stock­ton’s Miracle Mile.

Doors Book Re­cy­clery and Mr. Otto’s Book­store oc­cupy the same space at 2310 Pa­cific Ave. while the Miracle Mile Book­store, 2210 Pa­cific Ave., is about block away.

Owner Phong To an­nexed the two build­ings specif­i­cally for those who love books and have a love for read­ing.

Door Book Re­cy­clery is a Chil­dren’s book store – Mr. Otto has books for chil­dren of all ages, ac­cord­ing to www.vis­it­stock­ton.org.

Mr. Otto is Tim Otto, a re­tired school teacher.

As for Miracle Mile Book­store, as one lo­cal res­i­dent puts it, is “a thrift store ( but) with a bunch of books and DVDs that you can buy for with just a cou­ple of bucks.”

The Miracle Mile Book­store is open seven days a week, from noon to 6 p.m., with 2,500 square feet of book shelves, car­ry­ing any­thing from New Age, West­ern Phi­los­o­phy, and as­sort­ment of self-help books along with the clas­sics.

“They have a lot of clas­sics, and the books are or­ga­nized by gen­res – in­ex­pen­sive and the staff is friendly,” said one Stock­ton woman.

Look no fur­ther than the Doors Book Re­cy­clery / Mr. Otto’s Book­store for clas­sic chil­dren’s books.

“I came in here ex­pect­ing to look for some nov­els but quick- ly turned into a 7 year old again with all my child­hood fa­vorites,” said one of the lo­cals who went by ‘Dr. Gonzo’ X.
