  • Bring in used books Wed.-Sat. (you get more $$ in store credit than just cash.) They are happy to order books for you at no additional cost and have a great jewelry/gift section in the back!
  • Be on the lookout for the staff recommendations, they're sticking out of the recommended books.
  • Author events, staff and their picks and knowledge, top releases, hard to finds, and bargains
  • BB is fantastic because not only do they sell new & used, but they also have a great selection of gifts, plus a lecture series! :) As far as Boston area bookstores go, this is hands down my favorite.
