Brooklyn Book Shopping (A summary)
Barnes and Noble (Court Street): Out-of- stock fail
Barnes and Noble (7th Ave): Out-of-stock fail
Amazon.com: sent-book-to-four-year-old, long-defunct-address-on-Hilton-Head-for-some-reason fail
Community Bookstore (7th Ave): WIN!
“Wow, first time that’s happened,” the girl at the counter said when I explained above tribulations.
Plug: Community Bookstore, 143 7th Ave. in the Slope. It deserves your shopping there.
Oh, and also, John Turtoro is one of its investors. That creep can roll, man.
(Edit: should note that the first store I tried was Book Court on Court Street, which also did not have it. Still an indie win in the long run)
