   Before I visited New York City last week, for my 18th wedding anniversary, Andye told me about this bookstore I just had to visit. Well, to make a long story short, I saw and I conquered!

This amazing bookstore has many levels to it, on every level is such a vast/wide selection of books from very old collectibles to very new ARC's (YES, you read it right!) They have a pretty big selection of ARC's. And they are practically giving them away. I just got lost in the basement, I have never seen such cool, old books. I was in heaven. If I had to guess, I would say it is FIVE TIMES BIGGER than any B&N or Borders. I haven't even started on the YA section... IT. IS. AMAZING!!! Not only can you buy a brand new book fresh on the shelf for way cheaper than Borders or B&N, but you can buy a previously read copy for about five bucks .
     


 I bought Andye a very nice, brand new, hardcover Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala, $8 = SCORE! It was the least I could do, she watched my five kiddos while I was gone. That's $1.60 a kid, not a bad deal if you ask me. It was a very win/win situation on both parties in my opinion :) Don't worry, I bought her lunch when I got home... does it count if we shared a meal??? :O)



YES, YES, YES, you're not seeing things, you read the title right! I am going to give away some books I found at the The Strand Bookstore, ALL OF THESE BOOKS ARE ARC'S (Advanced Reading Copies).


First Place - First choice of four books!
Second Place - Second choice of three books!
Third Place - Third choice of two books!
Fourth Place - Fourth choice of one book!

  10. I've been going to The Strand every year for about 6 years now. It is one of my favorite bookstores in the US :). I went this summer when I was in NYC and I searched high and low for the fabled ARC section. Didn't find it. And I admit I was too shy to ask :#! Anywho, I still loved it :D!

    Kudos on your anniversary and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip :)!

    xoxoxo,
