  • Aww aye love a visit to the Booksmith, just a great neighborhood book store. They have books of all kinds (including used), a kids reading section / area. Lots of magazines, some local crafts to boot. Very friendly, always busy but a good energy kind of busy. Checkout lines are never that long.
  • Very nice place, next to a lot of different things in the Brookline area. Downstairs you’ll be able to sell some of your books, but they’re fairly cheap about it. If you’re looking for extra cash and have hard cover books that are not at all damaged you’ll have a great outcome here. Book prices are normal.
