Brookline Booksmith 11/23/15
Historically dedicated to the fine art of browsing, the Brookline Booksmith was originally called Paperback Booksmith when it opened in the early 60s. The store was one of the first to display books by category instead of publisher - decades ahead of its time. Beyond floor-to-ceiling shelves of books, if you want to pick up a gift ahead of its time, browse the Giftsmith. We love the Booksmith not only because of a) walking distance from the studio; b) great space to browse & linger one of the rare places time seems to slow; c) it fosters a greater sense of community and also holds topical events and readings.
