Hi everyone and welcome to my first “check this out”! As this is a book blog, I figured what better to talk about than a semi-local mecca for book enthusiasts in the biggest city in the US. The Strand Book Store has over 18 miles of New, Used, and Rare books! It is always packed to the walls with bibliophiles and tourists alike, and carries an amazing selection of books and cool “The Strand” memorabilia. Check out their events page for upcoming events at the store such as signings and author presentations. Most of all, stop by and check it out in person. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget!
