When it's crisp outside and the sun fades sooner, sometimes there's nothing cozier than to tuck up with a good book. A few suggestions:

 

• Whether you have kids or not, the classic Harold and the Purple Crayon, with its slim profile and great lines, will go great with your decor. For used and new children's books, clothes, and toys, I like Flying Squirrel in Williamsburg, which has low prices and a friendly neighborhood vibe.
• A somewhat clunky DVD interface notwithstanding, The New Yorker archive is an incredible value: $61.11 on Amazon.com for every New Yorker article ever.
• For the pleasure of a pulp thriller with the substance of literature, try Susan Wheeler's Record Palace.

• And finally, if you'd like to see your Poet Laureate in person, I'll be reading on Thursday at 7 at the NYCAMS gallery, 44 W. 28th St, 7th floor.
