I have just come back from a trip to New York, and have found my own little piece of heaven in the city. I discovered The Strand this weekend. The jaw-dropping one stop shopping for all book lovers. They have miles and miles of books. New, remaindered, used, rare, out-of-print. It's all here. The best thing about The Strand, is the ability to browse for things that you never knew exsited, but want desperatly once you see it in the store. Of course I would recommend visiting on a weekday, since many a time, I felt I was going to be trampled, while stooped down to check out the books on the lower shelves. It was wonderful.
