WORD Bookstores are independent neighborhood bookstores in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Jersey City, New Jersey. Our primary goal is to be whatever our communities needs us to be, which currently means carrying everything from fiction to nonfiction to 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). If a weekly dose of WORD here isn't enough for you, follow us on Twitter: @wordbookstores.
The Strange Library
by Haruki Murakami
You have to unfold this book to get to the story. Isn't that enough to pique your interest?
How to Be Both
by Ali Smith
The brilliant Smith packs two books into one in this novel, which is half about George, a young woman rattled by the death of her mother, and half about the artist whose work speaks to George across centuries.
Here Comes Santa Cat
by Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Claudia Rueda
Jenn and Molly are both a little bit in love with Santa Cat (who previously appeared in Here Comes the Easter Cat), who's very concerned about his naughty-to-nice ratio.
Saga Deluxe Edition Vol. 1
by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
