The Strand is a New York City institution. The stores' motto is "Over 18 miles of books." And when you walk inside any of its locations, you automatically believe it. I get dizzy just trying to take all those books in. One can find any subject they are looking for. Or one of its three locations should. From Gardening to Medicine. The Strand is also very reasonably priced. The main one being on 12th Street and Broadway. I recently purchased some nostalgic items just to have on hand. To Kill A Mockingbird and A Catcher In The Rye were my favorite books in high school. They are still two of my favorites. And a childhood favorite Arabian Nights. This book reminds me of those weekend afternoon movies about genies, women in flowy colorful attire and carpets that flew. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit The Strand I suggest you consider it.
