Stand and Browse
One of my favorite bookstores is Book1st inside the Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower.
They not only have a wide variety of books I can actually read (i.e. english books), but as the bookstore is located inside a school building of a designer school, they have a lot of art and design related books and magazines you wouldn't find in a regular bookstore. I especially love their photography book corner, which is usually where you'll find me when I need to kill time in Shinjuku.
I spotted this cute book called "Tokyo On Foot" the other day. It is a book filled with various tidbits about Tokyo, seen through the eyes of a French man and his drawings. Very interesting and lovely to look at...the colorful pages sort of reminded me of Evelyn and her drawings!
