Harvard Book Store


Harvard Book Store is an independently run bookstore serving the greater Cambridge area. The bookstore is located in Harvard Square and has been family-owned since 1932. We are known for our extraordinary selection of new, used, and bargain books and for a history of innovation. In 2009, we introduced same-day environmentally-friendly bike delivery and a book-making robot capable of printing and binding any of millions of titles in minutes.

May 1, 2015 – Harvard Book Store named one of “16 Indie Book Stores We Love” by Fodor’s Travel!

“This local literary landmark was started with a borrowed $300 and has since been serving Cambridge for almost eighty-five years with its massive collection of new and used books.Harvard Books offers a “green” delivery service to the greater Boston area, meaning you get your books delivered to you by bicycle on the same day you place your order. It is also home to an on-demand book printer that cranks out manuscripts of public domain Google texts, publisher-permission copies, and out-of-print titles (also a budget-friendly choice for self-publishers). Make the trip to check out this bookworm’s dream on a Friday during the summer and get 15% off all fiction as a part of Fiction Fridays.”
