Twice Sold Tales is your typical 2nd hand bookstore. Just off Broadway, you can skip the ease and cost of a regular bookstore and enjoy the search and thrill of victory (or defeat) in the many shelves of partially organized second handness. The problem, of course, is that their is no inventory, so unless it's a big name book and unless it falls neatly into one category, some books might take hours of searching to find, sometimes for nought. On the other hand, it might lead you to finding other books you'd forgotten all about wanting to read, and usually this means you can get all these books for about the price of one new Harry Potter. Twice Sold Tales is a second hand bookstore, which means that it's shelves have some character, but not necessarily the characters you're looking for.
