Looking for a romantic escort to stroll the city with this fall? Well, while I don't have anyone to set you up with at the moment, I strongly recommend you get your hands on A Booklover's Guide to New York. A love letter to all things literary, Cleo Le-Tan's new book will walk you through every neighborhood in the city, pointing out the best spots to shop for new, used, and rare titles, the coziest places to settle in for an afternoon of reading, and the landmark stops your favorite authors made before you.
New York is too brilliant a literary gem to miss out. Whether you're a collector, tourist, aspiring author, or just plain old fashioned book worm, we suggest you peruse the shelves at Alabaster Bookshop, spend a lunch break flipping through pages at The Reading Room at Bryant Park, saunter past John Steinbeck's old apartment at 190 East 72nd Street.
Peppered with charming Pierre Le-Tan drawings, the guide also features interviews with some of the city's most stylish, smart, and book savvy, like Marc Jacobs (who's got a nice collection of signed, first-edition Joan Didions), Tina Brown (who views poetry as "her own form of spiritual sustenance"), and Hamish Bowles (who spills on the most hideous color to paint your bookshelves).
