Let’s face it, we live in a new world, a world where books and the written word are ever becoming marginalized, side-barred, usurped by internet ‘content’ and flashy toothpaste packaging. The used book store, as we have known it for the last two centuries, is largely becoming a thing of the past. Now it’s just Borders, Barnes and Noble, and The Strand as far as the eye can see. But Book Culture is as close as we can ever get to that nostalgic past. You see, Book Culture accommodates professors at Columbia, Barnard, City College, and other campuses who like to actually teach things. This means two things for you: a selection of the best books to be had on earth, and a steady collection of used copies of said books. You don’t have to wade through ten rows of crappy, flash-in-the-pan fiction, or the giant display of Steve Martin’s last gaffe, just to find something worthy of a few hours of your life. No, the books are real, they’re the best, and there’s no DVD section or café. Just books. If you want it, it’s there. If it’s not there, they’ll order it for you. Simple. No; it’s beautiful. Simply beautiful then.
