A Book Lover’s Guide to Independent Bookstores!

Why Angry Algonquin? I’ve chosen the name to pay homage to Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Alexander Woollcott and all the other Algonquin Round Table regulars. The Algonquin Round Table was a group of New York City writers, critics, actors, and wits. Gathering initially as part of a practical joke, members of “The Vicious Circle”, as they dubbed themselves, met for lunch each day at the Algonquin Hotel from 1919 until roughly 1929. Learn more about them at http://www.algonquinroundtable.org/.

Why another book blog? I am a voracious reader (see my library below) and I love independent bookstores, so I came up with this idea to encourage readers to support their local booksellers!


I just added a News section to the site; check out “BookBits” and let me know what you think!


My beloved library

This site will highlight genres and individual books I love and includes information about where to buy and order the books in your home city or abroad.
