It's a veritable war of words between three New York bookstores on Twitter.
It is brutal out there in Manhattan today. Luckily for us we offer you something no other bookstore can: doors! They open AND close.
@wordbrooklyn Admit it, you protect your books from the elements with frayed tarp flaps, while we offer our customers real doors AND hinges.
Them's clearly fighting words, and @wordbrooklyn responded in kind with such gems as:
@mcnallyjackson In fact, we offer curtains IN ADDITION to our real doors, for an added layer of warmth on these cold winter nights
@mcnallyjackson Harsh words from a bookstore known to be responsible for the spread of Dutch elm disease in Manhattan.
During this back and forth, the non-profit Housing Works Bookstore got in on the tweeting action, calling out both WORD and McNally Jackson:
Hey everybody, let's follow @mcnallyjackson, purveyors of shiny new books, exclusive West-Coast coffee, and vicious prevarications.
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe: Better wifi, less cannibalism than @wordbrooklyn or @mcnallyjackson.
