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 to add your shop now.

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.
