Children's Book World on Haverford Station Road in Haverford, PA is a fabulous bookstore and resource. Its staff is incredibly knowledgeable, and it has a wonderful tradition of bringing authors to meet the kids.

Mrs Dalloway's in Berkeley, Point Reyes Books in Point Reyes Station in West Marin, north of San Francisco and Copperfield Books in Petaluma, CA, also north of San Francisco

These are more literary bookstores than college or social science bookstores

Kinda in memoriam: Bookstar (Loma Theater location), San Diego CA (WAS amazing; purchased by Barnes & Noble a while back, so probably technically disqualified, but still - how cool is it to have the bookstore in the old theater?)
