At Barnes & Noble, Union Square
I can't pass a bookstore without checking out its language shelves.
Whenever I pass a bookstore and have a couple of minutes to spare, I go inside and see what they have in their language section. It’s one of the best ways to find products that might not have turned up on my many Internet searches.
And it is such a cheerful, hopeful section. There are worlds in it.
These photos were all taken last weekend at the Barnes & Noble at Union Square. For those of you outside New York City, Union Square is in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

Bookstore-hopping is my version of an extreme sport.
Unfortunately, in New York City (and elsewhere) these days, it’s harder and harder to find bookstores. The number has declined dramatically since I first arrived in this city, and I truly miss the ones that are gone.
