About Us



Because we are a  independent bookstore, our staff truly cares about what we sell. If you inquire, you will get an informed and honest opinion, and if we don’t know the answer, we will try to find someone who does. If you need help in finding a book or item to serve your needs, we will assist you with that, as well. We have a large selection of books and gifts

for customers ranging from those who are just beginning their studies to the seasoned scholar or professional. We offer Tarot readings as well. We are hoping to get back to more in-store events soon.  We'll keep you posted.

I love Quest Bookshop. Raphael is the best tarot reader. He's been doing my cards for years and he's very accurate. He helped me find a ring that I lost in my house. Now that's cool! I also love their assortment of divination materials, jewelry, and other interesting stuff. It's one of the very few shops like this still around in the city. Definitely go and check it out!

What a charming shop! It was so hard to find a place that carried hanging crystals in NYC. Not only did they have a delightful selection of affordable "rainbow-makers," but they also carried my favorite incense (that I also have a hard time finding in NYC). There's a wonderful variety of books, dream catchers and many metaphysical treasures. I only popped in to get the crystals and can't wait to find new excuses to go back! 

This is a great place with great energy. Very honest people and the best selection of Tarot cards in the city and most of them are cheaper then you can get on Amazon. Nothing but great things happen here.




I had one of the most powerful healing experiences with John while attending the
Healing Arts Festival and Psychic Fair at Quest Books NYC.
John is a gifted Reiki Master. It is always hard to explain the unexplainable but during
my brief time with him, I not only felt extremely relaxed, I also could sense energy
moving within me as well as seeing extremely vivid colors in my mind’s eye while having
my eyes closed. It was truly amazing! After my reiki session with John, I literally felt
different – so much so that for the rest of the day, I felt the need to slow down, relax and
continue to tap into this healing. I kept saying to others and myself, “wow – that was a
deep healing I just experienced!”
