I agree with others on this site, that this shop is excellent! Having moved to boston recently, i was pleasantly surprised to discover the Raven. I like the fact that it is smaller than other shops, yet has more and better selected books than others. Prices are very good and the staff is friendly as well. It perfectly complements Harvard Bookshop for their new book selection. Living in Roslindale, it is sometimes a pain to get to Harvard Square, but it is definitely worth the effort.
