Return of the Bargain Aisle
The most fantastical and magical aisle in all of Book Culture is back!
The bargain aisle at 112th street is a wonderful place where books of all kinds can be found, discovered and uncovered amongst piles and piles of yellowed pages and dust jackets. The layers of books on a shelf can hide an out of print treasure waiting to fall into the right hands. Everyday people come in to sell us their old unwanted books with the hopes that they will one day find a new home. Everyday, when the stacks of books become too high behind the info desk, we move them and rearrange the shelves to house more orphaned texts. The books are constantly being moved around, and are placed in no particular order; more fun for the hunt!
Aside from the fun of rummaging through old books and finding gems, they are priced from $0.98 and up. Just like the carts we keep outside the store, we sell marked down used books in our bargain aisle. You can find a cheap copy of a book you’ve been wanting to read, like Life of Pi by Yann Martel or find an old collection of Longfellow poems. No matter what, every time you go you’ll find tons of new books. Or George Orwell’s Animal Farm marked down to $0.98.
All kinds of books make it into our bargain aisle. From novels, poetry collections, to cookbooks and picture books. You can find books about past presidents, current presidents, and past presidential candidates. Anything can make it into our bargain aisle but it’s up to you to find it.
