    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

    Keep an eye out for special events and book signings. I've met Ozzy Osbourne and Vince Neil just in my first two years as a BU student.

    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.

    This place is huge! Three floors of books, plus a ton of BU merchandise. There's a cool "Faculty Authors" section on the second floor.

    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.

    The manager here is terrible. So loud and disruptive. It's a bookstore not a warehouse right?
