Churchill: Who'd like to buy an Albany bookstore? - Times UnionThe word that kept coming to mind as I moved slowly through this bookshop was thorough. Full of 19th century brownstones, churches, shops, and cobbled streets, the neighborhood is a balance between tightly packed residential homes and commercial corners full of restaurants, bars, and cafes. Parking is a bit of a hassle, but if you manage it this shop is worth it. They buy books as well as sell, and they have a few shelves in the front area presenting their newer purchases. They're in unordered piles, but this does make for some fun, anything-goes browsing. Both newer and older titles are mixed in, and I saw plenty of recent history hardcovers that I had purchased at full or near full price elsewhere. Here, they were just a few dollars apiece.

Small Book Store in Albany Draws in Big Business
Our bookish travels recently led us to Albany, the capital city of New York State. During our stay there we visited three area book shops. Rensselaer is located on the Hudson River directly opposite Albany. Just outside this store there were tables of books under a tent and on the front porch at deeply discounted prices. I found one or two under the tent to take with us, and a few more inside the shop.
They buy books as well as sell, and they have a few shelves in the front area presenting So now I know—always check Dove & Hudson first.

That's as true in this internet-fueled era of smartphone distraction as it was 30 years ago. Without books and pleasant places to buy them, humanity is lost. That's my opinion, anyway. Happily, cities around here still have good bookstores. Northshire in Saratoga Springs. Market Block in Troy. Open Door in Schenectady.
