"New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week
you can begin paving hell with them as usual."
Do you make New Year's Resolutions? We have one that we make every year: to read more books! But collectively, we have several others. Some of our staff wants to learn to like Sci-Fi. Some of our staff wants to learn to read books that aren't Sci-Fi. Some of us want to eat more vegetables, and some of us want to perfect our cookie baking. If you want to start meditation, we have books for you. If you want to learn British history, we have books for you. If you want to sell your crafts on Etsy, we have books for you. No matter what your goals are for 2015, we'd be happy to help you acheive them.
"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):
After your Thanksgiving food coma comes Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Don't forget the "holiday" inbetween: Small Business Saturday!
