- I'll be honest, I expected to love this place like whoa. I own more books than is good for me, and it's rare for me to leave a bookstore empty-handed. I've done it both times that I visited Strand. Although the staff try to be helpful, the books are simply too disorganized to find what you're looking for. Even if you come with a particular book in mind, and even if the website and the staff computer says the book is in stock, you probably still won't be able to find it. The used paperbacks are stored 2-deep in horizontal tubs, making it hard to browse. Maybe if you really want to spend all day flipping through books at random, this could be a good place to shop, but that's a bit much, even for me. I'll stick to the smaller used book stores, and sad to say, Amazon.
