I just returned from an annual trip to NY with my niece and sister in law, it was fantastic just in case you would like to know.  I love NY and I love the theater in NY and I am so thrilled to share this with my niece and sister in law for our fifth annual trip.  At least we think it is our fifth.

Back to the post at hand. This was our first trip together since 24/8 has debuted and so I had bookstores on my list of things to do, see or visit.  I was stunned to find out from guide books, the concierge, and other sources just how many there are.  It was terrific to see those in New York City support so many bookstores.  Keep up the good work, may this spread to other places like a contagious disease. 

Just in case you are going to NY anytime soon and want to visit one of these shops this seems like a pretty good list to get you started,

Who decides which books get press (Harry Potter) and which get censored? After all, censorship is becoming America’s favorite past-time. The US gov’t (and their corporate friends), already detain protesters, ban books like “America Deceived” from Amazon and Wikipedia, shut down Imus and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever (especially for books).

America Deceived (Book)

John, the publishing world just like any other industry is complicated and 24/8 does not profess to have the key. While you are clearly very passionate about this topic, 24/8 does not exist to tackle these types of issues. Instead it provides a haven for our 24/8 community from their hectic lives. It is a place to go to relax and find out about books and the bookworld.
