April is National Poetry Month! We'll be celebrating all month long by sharing videos of us reading some of our favorite poems.
As Emily Dickinson says, "If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry." So stay tuned for videos of us reading poetry that blows our heads off!
You can watch all of our poetry videos on our Instagram (@dieselbookstore & @dieseldelmar) or on our DIESEL Video webpage.

The latest step in reopening California puts caution ahead of capitalism. Per Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders some “low-risk” retail businesses can reopen, but only for curbside pickup. And there is a long list of rules they must follow to keep customers and employees safe. Although low-risk retail hasn’t been clearly defined by the state, the governor has used bookstores, music stores, toy shops and florists as examples.

Now Open in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center!
DIESEL booksellers with our first customer!
Readers rejoice: A book store is returning to Del Mar Highlands Town Center with DIESEL, A Bookstore.
It’s been five years since Barnes & Noble closed after 21 years when the center renovations began, a heartbreaker for both the community and the center owner. Donahue Schriber Realty Group pledged to bring back a book store when the expansion was complete and they are delivering on that promise with DIESEL, a longtime California indie book store that also has a location in Brentwood.
“A bookstore has been the number one request from our customers for a number of years. We are thrilled to have a long-established independent bookstore join the center”, said Patrick Donahue, chairman and CEO of Donahue Schriber Realty Group. “Diesel’s new Del Mar Highlands location will be a great addition to the community.”
