Shakespeare & Co. is a citywide chain with a hometown heart; it's a real neighborhood bookstore, catering to the whims and reading appetites of a local clientele. Unlike many independent bookstores, Shakespeare & Co. doesn't specialize: It stocks a well-balanced mix of fiction and nonfiction, classics and current authors. Another indicator of Shakespeare's local roots: Best sellers, displayed behind the counter, are determined neither by national sales figures nor the New York Times, but by the store's weekly receipts, reflecting a sense of what the neighbors are reading.
