I brought my son here and he was very happy with the selection of children books, particularly fictions. He told me he would want to come back soon.

I'm looking for books sold in set and I found them here. I was really happy and satisfied with this book store.

One of the things I like about this book store is that they allow customers to scan the books for sale. This helps in deciding whether or not you should or should not buy a book.

The superior book store in Cambridge for too many reasons to count - I love this store. I work as event staff and it is just as great behind scenes as it is in front. The book sellers really care about their customers and the books that they buy.

Heavens and earth, yes. My first flying visit (1972) asked about a paperback Lattimore translation of Odyssey. Clerk at the cash pointed at the two dollar hardback on a remainder table. Visiting ten years later, flying through town again, asked about Hooker's Laws of Ecclesiatical Polity. Again, clerk at the cash pointed to a two dollar hardback on the remainder table. Perochoresis, those weirdly timed serieses of events that dance and swirl around us as we move through our lives.

You can find all the latest books here. They are updated on the latest release every month. So whenever I need to find something new to read, I make sure to visit this place.

I came here to here for an event (it was a stop on an author's book tour). The event staff were extremely pleasant and well organized. The store itself is fun to just wander around in looking at the wide selection of books. The store is bigger inside than it might appear from the street (an includes a basement floor full of books as well).
