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 go to Grafton Street Pub and Grill on Bow Street and then to J.P. Licks for cappuccino crunch ice cream. Wonderful evening!
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. I always get immersed in the new, meaning to look at used later, but never seem to make it. Definitely stop... 更多

This is the best place to duck into when it is raining or cold. Warm yourself, dry off a bit, or cool off on a muggy day in the "dog... 更多
Sadly, the once dozen bookstores in Harvard Square has dwindled to two or three, but happily one of the survivors is the best of them all, Harvard Bookstore. They have a fantastic collection of books, leaning toward books from the academic presses, though there is a good selection of mainstream titles also. The staff is also very knowledgeable and helpful.... 更多
This is my favorite bookshop in Harvard Square...there used to be so many bookstores here but...well you know what happened. Harvard Book Store is an independent and welcoming presence. Books galore, a very helpful and experienced staff. Special events like author talks and signings and midnight releases of the latest Harry Potter story....but basically a haven for browsers and buyers.... 更多
