St. Mark's Bookshop. This little jewel of a bookshop in the East Village was recommended to me by a beautiful, jewelry designer friend of mine. St. Mark's Bookshop specializes in Cultural Theory, Graphic Design, Poetry & Small Press Publishers as well a great selection of fiction and a wide range of literary journals, fashion and hard to find magazines. One of the unique features of this store is that they accept, on consignment, self publishing books by local authors, like the short stories, Lost Positives by John Cotrona or The Evasion English Dictionary by Maggie Balistreri which was subsequently picked up by Melville House Publishing. They are very helpful and welcoming and their website is interesting to browse, especially the store's bestsellers or the new arrivals sections. Is there a better way to spend a few hours?
