I'm not sure how they do it, but The Book Cellar in Lincoln Square somehow compiles a stock of books that are 100% interesting. You know how in some book stores there are entire sections you just skip over? Not so at The Book Cellar. Every time I go in, I'm dumbfounded by how I want to read *every single book* in this place.
In addition to that, they sell beer and wine and have a salad/sandwich menu. During August, The Book Cellar is offering tasting flights (six 1-oz. pours of wine - 3 white, 3 red) for $7. This is a great way to get to know some new wines! After your flight, if you decide to purchase a full glass you'll get a discount, and better yet, if you decide to purchase a bottle, the cost of your flight is waived. Yes, please.
