Hardcopy books are becoming as obsolete as photo calendars these days, but our love for them is still rock steady. Nothing compares to opening a fresh new book that smells of photocopier and chlorophyll, or an old one that smells of grandpa’s silent regret. And much like the books themselves, the stores where you find each book you own bear distinct personalities. Some are musty-smelling and leather couch-adorned; others are minimalist and gleaming white; some feature cats.

Yep, a bookstore is like a snowflake: no two are alike. Just like people! We’re all so different!

So, which Brooklyn bookstore is most on-brand for you? Where should you do all your book shopping in the borough? Put simply, which store is your spirit animal? Find out, with this handy quiz. Remember that once you discover which bookstore you are, there’s no going back. You can never frequent any other bookstore ever again, and must pledge yourself unflinchingly to the store that chose you like Harry Potter’s wand chose him.
