If you are into old books or rare books or just into books, this is the place to find them. All books are reasonable priced and just browsing is an experience all by itself.
As antiquarian book collectors from the UK (and so spoilt with quality secondhand bookshops), we found Boston pretty good. This was the best though - large stock, reasonable prices, some good quality in the outside bargain sections and great to browse.

Maybe if I had never visited "The Strand" in NYC or Haslam's in St.Petersburg and had their vast selection to compare it to, this would have earned a higher rating but, the thing is, I did. And so, no, unlike the other reviewers this used bookstore will not merit a second visit for me...
This is a wonderful store! They have plenty of books in the store, but also have a section outside of books that are $1, $3, or $5. I've found some incredible books there. If you love books, you have to check this place out.
Made a trip to Brattle Book Shop after hearing about it and was not disappointed. This is the place to go if you like browsing and discovering old books and hidden gems at your leisure.

You can get help or be left alone to roam the stacks. Don't miss on your next trip to boston. Prices are very reasonable also. Something for every... More
For me a magical place to loose my time. I really like the smell of old books, something very happy occurs inside me. I also find one piece for my collection, wonderful! Maybe the best books shop in the world
