7. Brattle Book Shop, Boston
“Too freakin cute. An open air bookstore wedged between brick buildings in downtown Boston. You’ll find everything from used gardening books to classics and everywhere in between. There’s also a small indoor section but the books under the sun steal the show.” —Yelper Brittany S.
“They have a large number of books from $1 to $5, including entire book sets. These are ‘bargain’ books displayed in a small lot adjacent to the actual book shop.” —Yelper Dee L.
8. City Lights Bookstore, San Francisco
“Ahhhh, City Lights! Classic indie bookstore and San Francisco gem. Tucked away in Chinatown amidst a spectacle of neighboring night clubs, bars, trendy coffee shops and eats. It’s perfectly grungy yet hip enough to satisfy any book lover’s dream.” —Yelper Rachel Ann C.
“This is a quite large, three-story bookshop that you can really get lost in. I love that it has plenty of rooms with natural light (a rarity in most bookshops). Sitting in the rocking chair in the poetry room, I wanted to spend all day there reading.” —Yelper Jordan T.
