Naked bookseller a popular guy in Quartzsite

Most residents and visitors of Quartzsite have visited the town’s only permanent bookstore, operated by Paul Winer, who is best known for what he doesn’t have than what he has. What he does not have is clothes on his body as he goes about his daily work, including waiting on customers. He likes to tell the story about how he was America’s original exotic male entertainer, which means he did his act sans clothes. His store is an entertaining desert oasis for book lovers, stuffed with mostly used books, but some new ones as well. And there are magazines and DVDs and other stuff. This is not a store to bring children, but it is THE place for grownups to visit in Quartzsite to find a book. In this short, poor quality video, Winer talks about his store and his life as the "Naked Bookseller."

Learn more about Paul Winer and his store in the The Greatest DVD About Quartzsite, available from RVbookstore.com.
