"One can never have enough socks," said Dumbledore. "Another
Christmas has come and gone and I didn't get a single pair. People
will insist on giving me books."
--Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
We confess: we buy books for Dumbledore, too. If you're like us and prefer giving books, why not stop by City Lit? We have loads of titles in store; we can special order most books for you (and have them in 2 or 3 days!); and we can recommend great reads for the most stubborn people on your shopping list. Every bookseller here has personal favorites, and we have a gift guide containing all our favorite 2014 releases. We've also enjoyed browsing this year's New York Times' 100 Notable Books. Most of their favorites are in stock at City Lit, and we can share our own opinions about them, too! Check out some of their favorites below (then stop by to see them in person):
