The Seattle Times ran an article on unique bookstores in the US that so express the communities in which they exist that they qualify as tourist stops. One not on the list that I stumbled across on my recent trip to Manhattan is The Drama Book Shop, 250 West 40th St., between 8th and 9th Avenues. I noticed it as I was heading in to CUNY's graduate school of journalism to give a talk and stopped at the end of the day after I met with some editors. I made it all of 15 feet in when a title caught my eye and I ended up purchasing it and heading off to read. Next time I'm in Manhattan, I'll be heading back. Another favorite of my wife's and mine is in the town of Montague, Mass.. It's called the Book Mill, as it's situated along side a river in an old mill building. A used book store, it has a good selection, but what really stands out is its marketing phrase: books you don't need in a place you can't find.
