  • When in Boston I always try to stop here. The selection is very well thought out by people who are true readers. So many lovely choices, you may leave your cash here. They have both used and new books...  more »
  • Named Harvard Book Store is not the official college bookstore. It is a fairly ordinary Bookstore. That felt like a lot of scholarly book is going.

  • A library that seems to be in England, excellent service and wide range of options to take a souvenir or a gift.

  • 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
