A terrific bookstore in the middle of Cambridge

The staff are super-helpful, I always find something that intrigues me, and they have great coffee and fresh rolls in the café! If you can find a seat, it's also a cozy place to hang out on occasion.

A nice surprise for Porter Square

I have to admit, I was skeptical when I saw that a bookstore was coming to Porter Square. I don't know why, but I couldn't imagine it'd be worth my time. That opinion changed with my first visit. For a relatively small store in a busy shopping plaza, PSB has a good variety of books, lots of events, and frankly carries more interesting stuff than I'd have expected. Their customer program (free) is a great way of competing, at least a little, with the bargains offered a chain bookstores, and the cafe has solid coffee, tasty scones, and is a good place to settle in for a read, if you don't mind being near studying college kids. I really miss living near this bookstore.

The folks here are lovely. I've done several events here and they always make us feel welcome. Great selection, too...
