Boom! New York magazine in its latest issue has published an analysis of New York bookstores that buy and sell used books. They have also, with a random sampling of used books, gauged what you can get for your books at these stores. And guess what? Shakespeare & Co. comes out on top! We need to hang a sign out or something, because I feel like a lot of people don't even know we buy used books. Also, it's worth mentioning that they only sampled our store in the Upper East Side, by Hunter College, which only accepts used books with a student ID card. Not all stores in the company have this policy; we here in Brooklyn, e.g., have no such hard requirement, although we do reserve the right to request one for some buybacks.
Also, what the heck is Book Thug Nation?
