McNally Jackson

McNally Jackson is an independent bookstore in New York City. We aspire to be the center of Manhattan’s literary culture: witness our events, our two floors of books, our engaged staff. Not to mention our bustling café, because what, after all, is reading without coffee? Yes, we arrange our literature by nation, but we’ll be glad to help if you find yourself lost amongst the Europeans. (We sell travel guides, too.)

You can’t be the center of any kind of culture without being online. Whatever your bookish preference—e or otherwise—you can now shop McNally Jackson from home. Start searching at the top of your screen, or have a look at what we recommend. We deliver throughout Manhattan and will happily ship anywhere in the country. Elsewhere, you can reblog us on tumblr, friend us on facebook, and follow us on twitter.
