Best of Boston

1998 Best Bookstore, Specialty

Globe Corner Bookstore

This is the place to satisfy literary wanderlust, from Boston to Bangladesh to Beijing. Seating makes longer browsing more comfy. And the staff doesn’t seem to mind, even when you pull out a pad and take notes on hotel and restaurant phone numbers. Now, if they’d just install a phone for making the reservations.
