Independent Booksellers of New York City

Shop local – Don't go by the book!

IBNYC Roundup – January 2009: NYC Booksellers in the News

eastvillage1Have you seen the ongoing series about NYC indie bookstores on Reporter Mona Molarsky has written short tributes to over 20 independent shops around the city as part of the website’s CitySecrets series. Here are links to the stories that have been published so far. Be sure to look for the useful “insider information” she includes for each profile:

Other media coverage of NYC indie bookstores that has been published recently:

ny-revbooks-620b-webNY Press profiles Revolution Books and the Washington Post looks at Japanese shops Kinokuniya and Book Off.

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle profiles Bay Ridge’s Bookmark Shoppe and the Columbia Spectator takes a look at the indie bookstores of Morningside Heights.

Bonnie Slotnick’s collection of used and out-of-of-print cookbooks are featured online at Country Living. Her store is also featured in a piece on the last page of the food issue of World Literature Today (not available online).

Updates: One we missed last month: T Magazine mentioned appointment-only bookseller High Valley Books in their Holiday Guide. And we added a link to last month’s roundup, for the WNYC piece on Latino bookstores – the segment is now available online.
