  • My favorite book store! Plenty of new books. Helpful staff. Lots of used books in the lower level. Before COVID, they had book authors speak about their latest book, and sign a copy if you bought...

  • Love this store! Books are more pricey than you could find elsewhere online, but I think it is worth it to support a local brick and mortar store. Staff are always very helpful and kind. They have new books, used books, local Boston and Brookline themed goodies, and a gift shop with a multitude of items. Great place to buy a unique gift for someone.
  • This bookstore is what I picture when people say heaven!!!! The selection is fabulous and very well rounded! I could easily spend hours in this amazing store! It even has a gift shop! I love all the staff reviews! I love how well each section covers and explores its focus! There are lots of diverse books and overall a really amazing community vibes that is great for friends and family to come together and be surrounded by books!
