  • I really mean every book. Not only do they have a great selection of new books, remainder books, and used books, they also have an option to print your own book!  more »
  • Love this place. So happy this independent book store is still here for all to enjoy. The staff is well-informed and he store is always well-stocked with new and old. Stop in. Worth the trip and then ...  more »
  • The store was too crowded for our taste, but the selection was good. Worth a visit if you're in the vicinity.  more »

  • The whole area would be poorer without this place. Philosophy and critical theory, fiction, and poetry sections are all strong. Downstairs, bargain remainders abound. Some of the booksellers can be aloof, but they know what they're doing - and they deal with tourist hordes, so I get it. If you're in Cambridge and love books, you can't go wrong here.
  • Really great book store. The remainders and used books in the basement offer a lot of interesting finds and good deals. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
  • This is a great, small bookshop. Knowledgable staff. The used book basement is great to browse through but it definitely has a dark, actual old basement feel to it. Upstairs, their children's selection isn't as diverse as some other area stores, and it would be awesome if they had the space for some chairs to sit at but obviously real estate is at a prime in the square.
  • The staff are amazing and the book selection is great. Plus, they'll order anything! The downstairs used book section is pretty good too
  • Incredible place to find a wide selection of books with afordable prices and tasting the lovely feeling of bookhunting among meters and meters of shelves
