I have just returned from visiting NY and your store. I immediately came to the site to see what else you had ... am I in trouble! I could have spent hours (ok, more hours) there! The staff was wonderful! My husband and I are avid readers (of everything) and we will be contacting you again I am sure. Thank you so much! - Tammy Z.
