Hi
Almost any template will work.
It really depends on how many books you will have in your store.
If it is only a few then you could just add a paypal button to each book if it is likele to grow into a large store then a dedicated shopping cart solution such as Hikashop would be best www.hikashop.com/en/home.html

K2 will work with K2store but will not give you the full flexibility that something like Hikashop can provide
Are you selling physical books or files?
Other carts worth looking at can be found here. extensions.joomla.org/search?q=shopping+cart

Suggest that you download the starter version (free) and give it a go as a test.
