Check out A Bookstore in Brooklyn. It’s the blog of two women (one from Random House, one from the great Soho bookstore McNally Jackson) who are working together to open an independent bookstore in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

bookstore shopping in tokyo

As you may or may not know, I recently returned from a trip to Tokyo. While there, I of course needed to visit some bookstores!

This bookstore, located in Shinbashi, had a small English-language section. The one Harper Perennial book included? Doris Lessing’s Alfred & Emily. Good choice.

Awesome Japanese take on One Hundred Years of Solitude, which we publish here in the states.

Less awesome (in my opinion) Japanese take on Brave New World

A random selection (love that Lolita cover!)

There was also a Japanese dog version of Maus called Waushwitz, but we don’t need to get into that.

Who else feels the need to visit bookstores on vacation no matter where they go?
