Anticipating spring author events, The Boston Marathon, and birdwatching weather. Bracing for these final weeks of winter with stacks of philosophy and Russian lit.

What a gem! Great selection of books. Also, there are a lot of bargain priced books.

Harvard Bookstore has a great selection from the popular to the esoteric. The staff is good and know their books and will find anything you need. Their used books selection is great as well and they buy old paperbacks with the option of a store credit or cash. I love browsing and spend hours there. Their author readings are extensive and very broad appealing to all kinds of interests. A great independent store.

Harvard Book Store (not to be confused with the Coop!) is a great, local bookstore. It's got an excellent selection of new books, plus it has a large used book room and lots of remainders. There are lots of deals to be had! Plus they offer various bonuses for members, and there is an annual warehouse sale that will blow your mind. This is always my go-to bookstore.

A real independent bookstore which actually chooses the books it offers -- much more than current bestsellers. A great place to browse, with a friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, and late evening hours. Excellent collection of remainders and decent used books downstairs. Compared to the Harvard Coop down the street, it is much smaller, but manages to have all the *best* books on a topic, while the Coop just has lots. Harvard Coop is better for technical books (comp.sci., math, stats, business), MIT Coop much better. Schoenhof's, a block away, is the definitive place for language learning and foreign language books. The book robot lets you print and bind at a very reasonable price a huge variety of texts from Google Books -- or your own PDF. This is a fantastic service for those who are interested in pre-1920 books in particular, almost all of which (!!) are available. Massialot's ''Nouvelle instruction pour les confitures, les liqueurs et les fruits'' (1705)? -- it's there. Redhouse's classic ''Simplified grammar of the Ottoman-Turkish language'' (1884)? -- it's there.

Dear Harvard Book Store, Curse you! I shake my fist at your near infinite selection of awesome used and discounted books. The savings become insignificant when I use bargain prices as my justification for buying 50 or so of them. I could get lost in your cavernous basement for hours, in fact I have. And I will continue to do so again and again with little remorse because you're worth it to me, darling. -Love Polina
