Best Asian American Bookstore (2008)

Asian American Bookseller

There's much more to Asian American lit than Amy Tan, and the ASIAN AMERICAN BOOKSELLER—the biggest of its kind in the country—is proof of the field's breadth and depth. Carrying the canonical, the obscure, and the emergent, the store also has a sizable selection of Asian literature translated into English. Browsers can hang out in a loft space with comfy couches and a friendly staff. And when turning those pages gets you hungry, there's great Korean food in the nabe. Run by the nonprofit Asian American Writers Workshop, the store has an annual Midnight Madness Sale, when books sell at a hefty discount.
