Welcome to the virtual home of Bluestocking Books!
Inventory is back up!
We are a "brick-n-mortar" REAL BOOKSHOP where magical life-changing books are discovered, toddlers squeal in delight at the sight of a book they recognize, old friends strolling together find common loves in literature & history, true loves meet and dogs sit politely for a treat. Yes, there are random philosophical quotes uttered aloud and books recommended by friends and strangers alike. We are community whether we know you or not, fellow reader and booklover: Welcome to our tradition! Our street address has housed a bookstore since 1967; 3rd owner & staff now for ~17 years intend to carry on the full-service neighborhood bookshop customs as long as there is a demand. We stock mostly used books and order both new and used books -just inquire. We have regular deliveries for the classic reprints and new releases.
Hours of operation are:
11am-7pm Monday - Thursday
9am-9:30pm Friday & Saturday
3817 Fifth Avenue
