    This is a great source! I'll swing by and check it out some time. Bushwick is a little out of my way but I like heading that way on weekends sometimes, and a bookstore is just extra motivation!

    Local bookstore is perfect, I just need to find my go-to. I'm sure there's no shortage in New York, it's partly also on me for not looking enough.

    That's fantastic. They didn't have the book I needed but I'll use it in future.

    I came across it a bunch but they didn't have the book I was specifically looking for this time, and ended up ordering from eBay. I'll mark this for future needs though. Thanks!

    Hello! I do a fair bit of my reading via Libby (I have memberships at the NYPL and Brooklyn Public Library) but I like to pick up some physical copies as well. I've spent some time in a couple of NYC bookstores but I'm curious about online portals folks here use to buy books. I've switched to bookshop.org for new books but what's the go to for used books?

    Thanks!

    Absolute bollocks, especially since there are zero ongoing costs to the company to keep the feature active.

    Also answers the vital research question of whether the Mona Lisa is cake proof.

    I was finally able to watch this last night. It's the most creative new movie I've watched in ages (though I may well have missed several). I immediately recommended it to a bunch of people, but also had no way of truly describing it at a high level that also did it justice. It's a movie of the year candidate for me personally.

    Spoiler Some things that really stuck with me:
    1. The scene with the rocks

    2. The full grown adult launching himself at an "award"

    3. The core themes about tough family relationships--this is not a neglected space by any means, but the way they went about it in this one was insanely good and had no business working!

    They're technically YA, but I think a lot of the narration is a bit more adult. It's one of my favourite series, and I think it's rather underrated. I'm not sure how the footnote style (which is a significant tool) would translate to visual media.
