I love the Stanford Bookstore...warmth, spacious and welcoming! Part of a larger cluster of coffee shops and student services.
Nice assortment of books, including a full section by Stanford graduates. Naturally a handpicked collection on creativity, critical thinking, innovation etc, And then there's the merch - everything from clothes (especially sweatshirts, tshirts and sportswear) to tumblers, stickers...lots of branded stuff for the whole family. Be sure to check out the lower floors for special offers etc.
