A writer explains how he came to the plot of his novel while fans listen quietly. We walk on and gasp at the travel section which is so massive that we cannot allow ourselves to start checking it out. We continue along rows and rows of books and pick up a few language books. Freshly pressed newcomers look very sterile next to the 2nd hand classics. Beyond literary gifts, coffee mugs with quotes from famous writers and witty magnets, we find ourselves stranded among 2.5 million books at Strand Books, New York City, a must stop for every book-lover!
