Off the Grid has conveniently rounded up a list of some of the Village's best bookstores. The catalog goes deeper than just St. Mark's Bookshop, and includes spots in every nook of both the East and West Village. Partners & Crime is a find for the Law and Order fanatic in us all (admit it), and Unoppressive Non-Imperialist Bargain Books gets points for carrying (as the Villager words it) "everything from how to get around Sri Lanka and why marijuana should be legalized to psychedelic art."
