Thanks to Matthew S. in Brooklyn for this most excellent YELP shout-out for WORD:
Thank the sweet Lord in Heaven above for independent bookstores. Mark my words: we will be eternally sorry as a country and a civilization when we let all of these wonderful institutions slip through our stupid little fingers into the corporate, big-boxed void. You MUST support them. And if you live in/visit Greenpoint you must support this one. Its stock is small (as is the store) but diverse and geared to the discerning book lover. Great new fiction mixed with classics mixed with fascinating nonfiction. And I’m sure they could order anything for you. The also have a fantastic children’s section complete with a perfect little reading area. You’ll also find super cool, hip little stationery and journals and chapbooks near the register. PLEASE. I BESEECH YOU: When shopping for books, shop independent. Shop Word.
