Why did it take me 3 years to finally step inside here? Great bookstore. Helpful staff. Of course I wound up buying too many books, but that's life.

I stop in often because I just can't get enough of the store! The events are great. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. The selection is impressive.

I live nearby, and drop in a few times a week to browse the used books and the remainders. The staff are friendly and helpful.

My wife and I lived a few blocks from Brookline Booksmith, and she worked there years before. I wish they were stronger in some of my interests—few independent bookshops go deep into computer or history titles—but it's still the best thing about Coolidge Corner.
