After 20 years at this location, Biography Bookshop (renamed Bookbook) relocated just down the street to 266 Bleecker. But the store still focuses on just what their former name promises: as comprehensive a selection of biographies as exists anywhere. All other genres are represented as well, from fiction to cookbooks. Current hardcovers are discounted 20 percent, and a large remainders section is significantly marked down.
