Brookline Booksmith

Nominated for: BEST Bookstore

Brookline Booksmith 279 Harvard St Brookline MA (617) 566-6660

Now in its 45th year of selling books, cards, and gifts to the wonderful readers of Boston, Brookline Booksmith is a neighborhood independent bookstores with thousands of old and new books, squeaky wooden floors, and a staff who love to talk about their favorite books. You can pick your next page-turner from the Essential Reads case - a shelf full of books the staff very nearly demand you read, the tables of new, in-demand paperbacks, or just by meandering through the aisles.
