Harvard Book Store is a unique and special place to shop—a locally owned, independently run Cambridge landmark since 1932.

This season we are featuring our Holiday Hundred–100 notable (and giftable!) books published in 2021. Our bookstore is known for an extraordinary selection of new, used, and remaindered books; an award-winning author event series; and a history of innovation—including print-on-demand services. On harvard.com visitors can browse our shelves, read staff recommendations, and view our calendar of upcoming author events.

Did you shop local this holiday season?

We have curated several special gift baskets full of goodies and gift cards from local businesses in collaboration with some of our locally-owned businesses. This year, there are a few different ways you can enter our giveaway: make a purchase from the gift guide, explore a local business, share on social media, or make a local holiday gifting recommendation!
