Best of Boston

2011 Best Bookstore, West

New England Mobile Book Fair

Forgive this book shop for its bizarre name and oddball location. Once you get past the tiny storefront, the Mobile Book Fair stretches through a parking lot and nearly to the horizon: rows upon aisles upon alleys of books. It’s as if the Internet put its entire inventory in one place. And the goods here are priced almost as competitively as what you’ll find online.
