WORD is an independent neighborhood bookstore in Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of Brooklyn, that recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. Our primary goal is to be whatever our community needs us to be, which currently means carrying a lot of paperback fiction (especially classics), cookbooks, board books, and absurdly cute cards and stationery. In addition, we're fiends for a good event, from the classic author reading and Q&A to potlucks and a basketball league (and anything set in a bar). We're a small operation, just 1000 square feet and four people, but we read too much, so it all works out. If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbrooklyn.
The Age of Miracles
by Karen Thompson Walker
Molly and Jenn both recommend this novel for its dreamy, slightly sinister dystopian feel.
by John Scalzi
Jenn says: "This is my favorite meta-fiction since The Princess Bride. Clever and incredibly satisfying."
by Adam Rex
We will read anything that Adam Rex writes ever, and so should you. His newest is now in paperback, so you have no excuses!
by Brené Brown
