I have lived in the neighborhood for years and rarely pass without picking up a few books, or stocking client's shelves in their homes.

Notes from Strand Bookstore:
Today, the Strand carries over 2.5 million used, new, and rare books, covering topics as far-ranging as occult to philosophy to finance. The store also offers an ever-changing array of literary gifts and goods from Moleskines to coffee mugs, and everything in-between. Really, we mean everything in-between, from a Shakespeare insult mug to the wildly popular Strand onesie. Our employees are not only knowledgeable about books but they’re also passionate about them. Not only can they help you find a book, they can also recommend something you might love if you give them a quick description of your literary tastes. With our famous dollar carts outside you can always find a gem but that doesn’t mean there’s not a hidden treasure inside the store, like a beautiful Rabelais for $15. Strand continues to house old treasures for reasonable prices while offering one of the largest, most diverse selections of books in the country. Our in-store events feature some of today’s most interesting and provocative personalities, from Lin Manuel Miranda to Patti Smith and dialogues between such greats as Ocean Vuong and Jaqueline Woodson. If you are looking for a relaxed, intimate evening where you’ll be both engaged and entertained, we have the programming for you.
