Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Cunningham called this "one of the greatest bookstores on the face of the Earth" for its friendly atmosphere and well-read personnel (staff favorites are displayed up front, along with noteworthy new books). Named after the Gertrude Stein novel, the corner shop has been supplying selective New Yorkers with their bedside reading since 1968 and, under new owner Toby Cox, has managed to survive into a post-Amazon age. It doesn't have the selection of the big chains, but it does have a devoted following, neighborhood charm, and an ambience that feels like the library in your most erudite friend's country house.
