Only in Cambridge: You, lounging around your country-chic room in Harvard Square with a certain hunger. Maybe it’s for Shakespeare, maybe it’s for Tom Perrotta. Within minutes, a staff member delivers a gripping read from the lobby’s collection of 500 books (many of them autographed). Best Library Room Service
