We currently pass through an unprecedented time of difficulty, where it is just as important to console ourselves as it is to ensure our safety. As per indexes, reading in times of crisis preserves learning, with the need of the continuation of learning for children proves to be critical.

Reading creates a different sensation to people, hence a different meaning for them altogether. While it may be comforting or calming to some, it evokes catharsis in others. In these ever-changing times, let’s look at some bookstores that will help you keep your head above water.

Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza

Books are innately pleasurable; it instills a sense of satisfaction among the readers. Hence a store that houses such gifts to mankind is naturally meant to be warm. Keeping that very thought as their ideology, The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza is a cozy intimate bookshop that also extends its services over to a children’s store, as well as Market Block books. Their roster mostly includes volunteers, whose efforts spread across facilitating charities, book clubs, and other events. They are currently open inculcating Covid-19 measures.

Dove & Hudson

With over 30 years of experience under their belt, Dove & Hudson is a vision-turned reality for its owners. They primarily sell used books, which still does not visibly show the ravages of time. With their own descriptions of their store being very interesting, like describing they have a strange source of supply at their store, it is nothing short of intriguing and engaging picking up a book at this store. The store is open on all days except Monday at regular timings.


If fun is your game, if you still entertain the teen in you and feed it with thrill, then probably Earthworld comics has been destined for you. Their collection being solely focused at comic books, this kick-ass bookstore boasts of carrying the largest collection of new comic book releases. Established in 1983 with the sole objective of rotting and seducing the impressionable minds, to put it subtly, they manage to create a havoc with their collection among the vast comic book mongers. Their door is open all days a week at different timings.
