Friday – Happy Birthday to the Strand Bookstore. Tomorrow the Strand Bookstore celebrates its 80th birthday with a Literary and Arts festival. Among the many writers participating in the festival’s all day book signing are David Kamp author of The United States of Arugula: How We Became a Gourmet Nation, novelist Sigrid Nunez author of The Last of Her Kind and Edmund White author of Hotel Du Dream. The event takes place from 11- 6 pm.

Inside: Eighteen miles of new, used, rare and out of print books line the bookshelves. It is my favorite bookstore because I love a bargain and nearly every book is reduced. I also love to browse and pick up reviewers copies at half price in the basement, look at the art and design books, as well as, look through the secondhand section.

Detail: New York’s independent landmark bookstore sells one Dollar bargain books outside.
