  • A great Brooklyn bookstore for families, WORD is all about community and neighborhood (Greenpointe) loving. Bring your kids to the great kids and YA events that they have here!
  • Fabulous Indie...best in NYC; great romance selection, though I might be biased, as I helped curate it!
  • Amazing staff and the best programming ever, bookstore or not. Tons of readings and events, a literary basketball league, running club, pot lucks, bananagrams tourneys - better than the YMCA!
  • I buy gifts for my entire fam here. Just ask for ideas from the staff if you're stumped.
  • Excellent indie book store with an interested and approachable staff! (also, hosts No Sheep Til Brooklyn, a knitting group that meets the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month!!)
  • If you don't see what you're looking for, just have them order it. You don't need the book that badly anyway. Support your local bookstore.
  • Alas, Naughty Droid: A Night of Shakespeare and Star Wars. An evening of readings from Ian Doescher's "Shakespeare Star Wars" series. The author will join the event via Skype. Tue, 7/1, 7pm, free.
  • The handwritten recommendations scattered on the shelves make it impossible for me to leave this store empty-handed.
  • Love having WORD as my local bookstore. Stellar staff, great events, & a well-curated selection of books & sundries. I also love the $5-off bonus whenever I spend $100, which I manage to do often.
  • I feel so lucky to have this amazing independent store in my neighborhood. Great for children's books and art books as well.
