Unnameable Books is an independent bookstore located on Bergen Street in Brooklyn, New York. [http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0126/p11s02-bogn.html 'We're not in it for the money' | csmonitor.com ] ] It has been profiled as an example of a small New York bookstore that survives as chains, internet sales and rising real estate prices drive more established New York independents like Coliseum Books and Murder Ink out of business. [http://www.nysun.com/article/46688 Booksellers Fight Back As 5 New Stores Open - January 15, 2007 - The New York Sun ] ] . It was depicted on the cover of the June 9 and 16, 2008 The New Yorker by the cartoonist Adrian Tomine. Founded as "Adam's Books" before being renamed, it specializes in poetry and has a reputation for an eclectic collection of used books.
