    Hate this bookstore. Bad service, expensive books, ridiculous deals. Better buy books from Amazon or other sites

    So much BU swag. There is a clearance section on the 3rd floor to the back on the right. Check it out to save money on apparel.

    On April 4, 1991, cyberpunk authors Bruce Sterling (left) and William Gibson signed books at the BU Bookstore. They had just collaborated on an ‘alternative history’ novel, The Difference Engine.

    Sales staff is always very helpful and friendly. Cafe is the opposite and inconsistent. Sadly the nearest actual Starbucks is on brookline ave and they're much friendlier.

    Not sure whether to buy, rent, or Ebook it? The B&N GM tells BU Today, consider whether you're likely to need a particular book later in your college career. If not, rental may be a good option. Read more
