while other stores are closing, and dozens of articles appear about the death of fiction, it was heartwarming to see Strands investing more space to fiction.
this is still the best bookstore in NYC.
It's still one of the best bookstores on the planet, and I still love the Strand - but I have to note that it is definitely shifting itself from "the place to find half-price review copies of recently published books" in the direction of "just another big bookstore with modest discounts".
(...Given that I can now get discounted books without leaving my couch, I increasingly wonder why I need to schlep into midtown Manhattan to achieve much the same results....)
