Bookstores in New York City...

I think I could spend weeks in New York City and still not get around all the bookstores. So I’ve made a list of the ones that really caught my eye. Hopefully I’ll get to a few of them in September…

The Corner Bookstore in Upper East Side who specialize in children’s and travel books.

The Strand Book Store in Greenwich Village apparently has eight miles of books spread over three floors.

Kinokuniya Bookstore located near Rockefeller Center is New York’s largest Japanese bookstore.

Kitchen Arts & Letters is a bookstore devoted to the subject of food and wine.

The Complete Traveller Antiquarian Bookstore on Madison Avenue has everything written about travel and exploration.

The Mysterious Bookshop is dedicated to the art of mystery writing.

McNally Robinson NYC and Teahouse

Books of Wonder (and Cupcake Café next to it)

I'm more than happy to add to the list so if anyone has a recommendation please let me know...

To write is to travel; there is no arrival - only a sense of energy in transit. Any textual artefact produced is a matrix illusion. We think our writing anchors reality to an agreed catalogue of ephemera; it doesn't. What it anchors is something less than the mist of yesterday's passing fancy. And there is no substrate for attachment. The journey is our home. Seek nothing more permanent.

This sounds wonderful Liz. I've especially wanted to go to the Strand Bookstore.

I look forward to hearing all your reports (and recommendations).
