1. Book Revue
313 New York Ave., Huntington. 631-271-1442. www.bookrevue.com
This bookshop is the epitome of independent bookshops. It is always bustling with customers, which is an encouraging sign for those worried about the future of the printed word. The café is a throwback to the days when the public debated issues in coffee houses instead of on Twitter. And they regularly host high-profile authors—including some unlikely celebrities that just happen to publish a book—at signings. If you haven’t been to the Book Revue in the heart of downtown Huntington, what are you waiting for?
