Book Festivals, Used Book Sales, and Used Book Sellers in the Finger Lakes

It cannot be denied that having more than 20 colleges and universities in the region helps to promote reading, but reading tastes in the Finger Lakes extend far beyond textbooks. Poetry, local history, the classics, cookbooks, essays, law, engineering, computer science, medicine, sex, even comic books can be found in great profusion in the Finger Lakes.
