Right off Harvard Square, easy to find. I regularly drop obscene amounts of
money there; they hold the pink slip to my car :)
If you feel spent (in every sense of the word) after a visit, there's a
really reasonably priced Asian noodle restaurant (catering to poor college
students) across the street, so the money you save there makes up for the
wad you just dropped buying that must-have Quecha-Finnish dictionary.
I haven't gone nuts online with them (as it's an excuse to go into Boston),
but I personally did not experience the webpage speed problems Maggie
describes when I trolled the site.
If you're in this neck of the woods, Andrew, go!
