This weekend Fred and I took a stroll through Carroll Gardens and discovered Pranga Bookstore on Court St. and President St — a book store with freak’n unbeatable prices. When was the last time you spend under 5 bucks for a book? Talk about kid in a candy store….I went a little nuts. I dropped 10 bucks and picked up a couple YA titles and a novel by Carrie Fisher. yeah!
Pranga Bookstore is tucked away from the main drag, just one block up from Smith St. The down stairs has an extensive children’s section and a clean well kept fiction shelves. The YA section in the back is a little small, but you can’t beat 2 bucks for a book. The real steals are upstairs. The books are deeply discounted ($3-5), but the sections aren’t alphabetized. I got a little cross eyed, and eventually I just gave up.
I usually rack up at least 3 buck in library fines…..you can bet I’ll be back.
