Pros: independent, knowledgeable, great sales

When you enter the Labyrinth books you won't get lost but you will enter a new world of academia textbooks often frequented by college students and college professors. You won't find any chairs or a coffe lounge to chill out in but you will find some very choice academia text books. Best book store for the hard core book lover.

Labyrinth Books is a great source of books from the scholarly fields. Just down the block from Columbia University they have over 100,000 different books in stock. What makes the store doubley special is the great sales annex where books are marked down as much as 90%. They have a great psychology section and have sections for virtually every subject Columbia offers courses in so basically they have most fields of endeavor covered.

PROS: Tremendous Assortment
CONS: A little tough to get your bearings, could be better organized

Labyrinth is a great independent bookstore with a stellar selection and friendly employees. They're located near Columbia University and their academic sections are especially strong, but their fiction and poetry sections are very good as well. The atmosphere of the place is probably the best thing about it -- no one will bat an eye if you hunker down and read for awhile.

PROS: Great bargain sales!
CONS: Strict bag check policy

If you're looking for something in particular, Labyrinth can be a trifle sketchy -- but only because your expectations are higher at this crossover bookstore than they'd be at a B&N or Borders. And there's a great serendipitous wealth of books to be found here in the sale stacks. Definitely worth a browsing trip uptown.
