Going to a famous bookstore or a book-shopping area is a must-do no matter where I go. Infact I dont remember a single visit in recent times where I have not actively researched on that information before the visit. So obviously travelling to Boston would not be any different. Of whatever I read I found that The Brattle Book Shop is the place to go. The Brattl Book Store is located at 9 West Street, Boston MA 02111. Established in 1825 , it is one of the oldest Antiquarian and used book store in US. Now I know squat about old and rare books but I thought this would be an ideal place to pay homage to for a bibliophile like me. Located in Backbay area of Boston, its approximately a 15 minute walk from the Station. The coolest thing that about the shop is the ‘Outside Sale lot’ which has hundreds of books ranging for $1 to $15. Its pretty awesome. You have a wide variety to browse through in all price areas. If I did not have luggage constraints I would have probably got a whole lot of books. The Shop itself is a three story building jam packed with books. The first two floors have a general fiction/non-fiction books and from what I saw I believe that even the new books are marked down from printed prices. The third floor is where all the old and rare books are. Though definitely outside my budget , it was still a nice experience to pick up and read books that were easily a few hundred years old.I would recommend a visit to this shop to anyone who is in Boston and loves reading.
