    This place doesn't accept $100 bills, which may be illegal and is a total nuisance if you're a boss gangsta. #cashisking #paperisdeadhere

    The couple behind the Greenpoint shop that has everything from book clubs to children's reading hours to a basketball league (yes, really) opened up a Jersey City location in the winter of 2013.

    Very well curated shop, but the tiny space has a tendency to get a bit crowded.

    Forget Zog. In the summertime, Word runs an awesome literary-themed basketball league with dirt-cheap entry fee.

    Author events are always worth it! Price of admission includes a signed book, and there's no extra charge for the entertainment.

    If you don't see what you're looking for, just have them order it. You don't need the book that badly anyway. Support your local bookstore.

    Love having WORD as my local bookstore. Stellar staff, great events, & a well-curated selection of books & sundries. I also love the $5-off bonus whenever I spend $100, which I manage to do often.

    Get $5 off every 100 you spend! Better than paying Barnes & Noble $25 membership to get 10% off. Find your books here at this cozy place tht makes you feel good!
