The Booksellers New York, NY – Bookseller magazine (AP Photo/David Goldman) (Photo: David Goldman)The booksellers in the New York metro area are the best in the country, says Bookseller magazine’s Jeff Schue.
The best of the best, he says, and the ones you want to see.
And, yes, he’s referring to those in Manhattan.
The Bookseller magazine has compiled a list of the top 50 bookstores for readers, in order of best to worst, and ranked them in five categories: Book-related products; the best customer service; bookselling facilities; and the best bookseller service.
“In some ways, this ranking was a little arbitrary,” says Jeff Schechter, who edits the magazine and co-hosts The Best of Books podcast with Matt McBride.
“It was an effort to give some sort of objective ranking to what is arguably the best city in the world, with its unique combination of unique bookstores, its book lovers, its library, its bookstore.
And it was a very subjective exercise.”
Booksellers and book lovers alike should be grateful for the effort Schue and McBride put into the project.
“The goal of our ranking was to give the reader a sense of how many bookstores exist in New Jersey and the other states in New England,” Schechters told The Atlantic.
There are also some things that Bookseller magazines suggest that readers should know about bookstores: “Books sell like candy.
People will buy what they want, at a price they can afford.
And that’s why there are so many booksellings in New Yorks bookstores,” Schue said.
Schu says bookstores are not all the same: “A bookseller in Brooklyn is going to have a much different experience from one in New Orleans or a bookseller in San Francisco,” he said.
“There’s a difference in experience between what people who work in the industry think they need and what people in the community think they really need.”
The rankings are based on reviews and customer feedback, and not any objective research.
Book sellers in the metro area have their own unique customer service: Booksellership in the Greater New York Area has a reputation for great customer service, but Booksellors New York and New Jersey do not have that reputation, according to Schue, so the rankings are not as accurate as they could be.
Schuchter and Schechter also noted that not every bookseller is as great as others in the area.
While Bookstores New York has been in business since 1959, and has had over 50 stores since 1970, New Jersey has only been open for a few years, and it is also a very small area.
“I have no idea how people have gotten to the top of the list, but the fact that they do is an indication that there is some quality in New Yorker bookstores and that they have some of the most passionate, knowledgeable and knowledgeable customers in the whole country,” Schue said in a phone interview with The Atlantic.
“The thing about New York bookstores is they are a little more liberal than many other bookstores.
They have a lot of space to store the best books they can find and a little less space for the next best book they can sell,” Scheechters said.
He added that it is possible that the top bookseller of the New Jersey area is Karen Petersen, the bookseller at the iconic bookshop that sells everything from a children’s book to a classic American book.
“[Peterson] is a bookshop queen.
She is the queen of bookselling.
She’s the queen, and I think that her success is a product of that,” Schuer said.
Schu agrees with that assessment, saying, “Karen Petersen is a fantastic bookseller.
She has a really good reputation and she does an incredible job.
She knows what she’s doing and she is not afraid to push the boundaries.”
“There’s just something about being in New york that really puts you in the same league as someone in San Francisco or Boston, so that’s the best part about being in New York.
It’s like being in Boston, where there’s a huge diversity of bookstores.”
Schues addresses the potential for bookselling to lose its place as a mainstream industry as the industry evolves.
It’s easy to say that booksellership is losing its cachet as a business, but he says that is not the case.
With the increasing popularity of online bookselling and the
