I know this has been all over the blogosphere today, but Marc Jacobs is going to open a bookstore in the West Village called Book Marc. The shop’s going to be at 400 Bleecker, the Biography Book Shop’s old home and right across the street from Magnolia Bakery. Some people are all in a tizzy because it’s supposedly going to taint the genuine, old-school literary nature of the neighborhood and expand Marc’s West Village shopping empire. I’m actually pretty excited to see what sort of bookstore Marc will throw together. And let’s be serious, there absolutely needs to be some kind of bookstore across the street from Magnolia Bakery. Books and cupcakes are two of my favorite things in the world!
