a walking tour of indie bookstores

  • About the author EB

The Millions has a great walking tour of independent nyc bookstores. Though the article notes that some of the stores on the original walking tour in 2007 have closed, new stores have also popped up. My own neighborhood store, Word, wasn’t on the original tour, and now it’s a pretty vibrant part of the area.

My only problem with the list? No Spoonbill & Sugartown! I was just there last night, and for all you fans of bookstores with cats, they’ve got a new one. (I was afraid to ask if this meant something terrible had happened to the beautiful tuxedo cat they used to have.)

**Thanks to Marc in our sales dept for letting us know about the walking tour.
