Fodor's Expert Review Brattle Book Shop

Downtown Boston Books/Stationery Fodor's Choice
Bibliophiles can't get enough of this old-timey book store that is, literally, chockablack with books—floor to ceiling and stuffed into corners. The store has been in operation since 1825, and today, owner Ken Gloss (a fixture on PBS' Antiques Road Show) fields queries from passionate book lovers about out-of-print, rare, antique and foreign language tomes, and also last year's used best-seller. If you're in need of a read for the ride home, browse the rolling carts in Brattle's adjacent outdoor lot, where books of all genres go for $5, $3, or just $1.
