Another awesome Musing Monday question from Rebecca at Just One More Page. It's about my favorite places in the whole wide world--BOOKSTORES!
How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
I am a chronic book-buyer and when I buy I tend to buy in bulk. My favorite in-person places to buy books is the Clove Lake Book Store on Staten Island. I grew up going to this bookstore and it the best place in my hometown to browse. I could spend hours in there. When I am in NYC, I love the Strand. It's like a treasure hunt. I have never been so distraught as when I found out they were closing the Strand Annex. I also love Library and Estate used book sales. You never know what you are going to find. I also go to Barnes and Noble because there aren't that many good bookstores on Staten Island and B&N has the best selection.
My favorite online bookstores have to be Alibris and Amazon Marketplace. I tend to prefer the Amazon Marketplace because you can't beat a book for a penny. I love both places though.
