We consider a
'shop' to be any business with a significant stock of secondhand
or collectable books, that welcomes visitors at advertised times,
or by prior appointment. This includes permanent units in antique
markets, private bookrooms, and weekly market stalls. Entries in
the Bookshop Guide are free, so why not take the opportunity
add your shop now.
the most (in)famous bookshop guide was produced by Drif
and old copies continue to delight customers and enrage many in
the book trade. Drif reviewed the owners as much as their shops
or stock and revelled in their eccentricities.
In the spirit
of Driff we invite you to review
the nation's bookshops and tell us which you think are the good,
the bad and the ugly.
