Among the many bookstores in Cambridge, can anyone recommend a unique one? Thanks!
Check out mayafly's page on Cambridge. If the bookstore she recommends is of interest, I believe it's on Church Street, right across the road from the Border Cafe. They have a computer system there which allows them to print out detailed maps from the US Geological Survey.
Shoenhoff's bookstore sells foreign books. :)
rwlittle is referring to the Corner Globe store across from Borders Cafe, it's a great place on Church Street.
Rodneys' on Mass ave (central square) has some rare to find books
There is also a foreign shop on mass ass closer to harv sq
The Globe Corner Bookstore (http://www.globecorner.com/) in no longer in the location on Church Street. After a number of months with no physical store, it has re-opened, still in Harvard Square, at 90 Mt. Auburn St. If you have any interest in travel, this is a must see for guidebooks, maps, and coffee table books with beautiful travel-related photographs.
Also in Harvard Square, we highly recommend the Harvard Bookstore (not the same as the Harvard Coop). It has a huge selection of new books on the first floor and larger (at least it seems) selection of used books at very reasonable prices in the basement.
Great recommendations in Harvard Square! I love going to both those bookstores. :)
