McNally Jackson is an independent bookstore in New York City. They aspire to be the center of Manhattan’s literary culture: Witness their events, their two floors of books, their engaged staff. Not to mention their bustling café, because what, after all, is reading without coffee? Yes, they arrange our literature by nation, but they’ll be glad to help if you find yourself lost amongst the Europeans.

In 2010, you can’t be the center of any kind of culture without being online. Whatever your bookish preference—e- or otherwise—you can now shop McNally Jackson from home. Start searching at the top of your screen, or have a look at what they recommend. They deliver throughout Manhattan and will happily ship anywhere in the country.
