19.11.14. Chris Harte and Mo H check out some of Bristol's secondhand bookshops ... mostly they don't agree :) Add a comment
17.11.14. Bakehouse Bookshop in Blackheath, London, only opens on the Second Saturday of each month (except August and December). Nicholas Sack, who added it, claims it has the briefest opening hours in the land - is he right? Add a comment
17.11.14. No matter what the weather our readers are out visiting and reviewing bookshops - even in rain sodden North Wales. Add a comment
13.11.14. Clewlow Books of Whitby have a substantial stock of antiquarian, collectable & better secondhand books - but you can only visit them on a Saturday. Add a comment
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.
