World Book Day

Today is World Book Day, which celebrates reading, publishing, and all aspects of book-making. I want to add appreciation of indie bookstores to the list. All are suffering right now. My favorite local shop is the the Locust Valley Bookstore, and my favorite small but mighty selection online is by Kendall Conrad.

All books above from Kendall Conrad.

  • My favorite independent bookstore is The Brewster Book Store on Cape Cod. Many happy hours over many years were spent there.

  • My local bookstore in Diesel in the Brentwood Country Mart. I’ve been ordering from them and there’s a curbside pickup. I don’t want anymore independent bookstores to go out of business. A book is a great Mother’s and Father’s Day gift and maybe Preston will curate a selection?

  • My favorite independent bookstore is The Corner Bookstore on the UES (93rd and Madison). Our book club just finished Lost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly (set a generation earlier than her first book Lilac Girls). Looking forward to release of All Adults Here !
