Steven Giles

Who doesn’t admire Mitchell Kaplan and his wonderful book stores—not forgetting the exceptional cast of characters that staff them? Whilst I dread to calculate the time and money I have indulged at his Lincoln Road emporium, barely a day passes when I do not pass through--credit card in hand--only to discover one more must-have title. I am an avid reader and possibly one of a dying breed but there is still the thrill for me of discovery and like a good addict that needs his daily fix Books & Books is my opiate of choice. In the voiceless world of internet trading, devoid of human touch, I hope Books & Books endures for another 25 years – one of the last vestiges of style, stimulation and sanctuary.
