I went to New York City for the first time last week, so of course I went to the Strand Bookstore (18 miles of books!!). I thought that I exhibited great self control in only buying six new books. These were my purchases:
Essays in Love by Alain be Botton
Free Will by Sam Harris
Paper Towns by John Green
The Receptionist by Janet Groth
Blueprints for Building Better Girls by Elissa Schappell
The Society of Timid Souls: or, How to be Brave by Polly Morland
It was a really amazing, though moderately overwhelming, store with tons of cute tote bags, notebooks, etc. I plan on going back on my next trip to NYC!
