This hotspot for students and professors specializes in academic works, ranging in fields from biology and environmental studies to 19th and 20th century American history, and also carries more "high end" fiction and art titles. The subterranean store, nestled beneath the Harvard Student Agency, offers a frequent buyer stamp program: for every $10 spent you receive a stamp; after 10 stamps you receive 25% off your next purchase. The store buys from the general public where they usually pay out between 17% - 20% of the cover price.
