We’re an island in the stream!

The Millions, a fantastic book blog, has added WORD to their “Walking Tour of New York’s Independent Bookstores,” and we couldn’t be prouder to be in such fantastic company. Click through to see the tour, although we’ll shamelessly repost their praise here:
“WORD, a new Brooklyn bookstore, seeks to bring the Three-Lives/BookCourt model of the cosy neighborhood bookstore to the off-the-beaten-path precincts of Greenpoint. In this case, WORD combines top-shelf contemporary literature with a great selection of kids’ books. Frequent events and a terrific staff help cement the connection between store and neighborhood. With one of the more impressive internet efforts among NYC independents, WORD is doing online community-building, as well.”
