Readers' Choice: Strand Book Store

Remember books? Well, this long-running bookstore deals in new, used, rare, and out-of-print ones, but there's no need to necessarily go inside for them, except to pay for what you got on the outside. As lovers of fine literature—and even some trash—are aware, Strand Book Store has shelves upon shelves of extra-discounted books stationed all around its exterior. The prices range from a buck to three whole times that, and if you pore through the possibilities, you'll come upon interesting showbiz memoirs (Shirley MacLaine's, Olivier's), historical works (lots of World War II), failed novels, offbeat recipe collections, and glossy picture books filled with gratuitous images of European royalty. You can easily acquire your entire Christmas-gift inventory here for about $25. You might even find some titles you sold to the store, but they're usually worth buying back because they're so cheap. And if you still can't bear to part with a dollar, feel free to just stand there and read the book for hours. No one stops you. 828 Broadway, 212-473-1452, strandbooks.com (10003)
