East Village Books – Used books fiasco

Whether you’re looking for a travel guide, a photography book, or a piece about ancient religions, you’re bound to find it here. Although, I would recommend going without a specific book in mind: the walls are packed with books from floor to ceiling so it’s a bit of a challenge to find something in particular. Plus, it’s much more exciting to stumble upon a great gem while swimming through the sea of books.

I’m especially impressed by their amazing collection of fiction. From Nabokov to Camus to Vonnegut, it seems as though they have works of every author under the sun.

There is an enclosed outdoor garden in the back that houses the books on sale, most of which are two dollars. However, the whole store is reasonably priced so don’t rush to the sale section right away!

This is a great place if you have a while to spare and don’t mind digging and searching through a wonderfully large and eclectic potpourri of used books and CD’s.
