The Bookshop Guide - the only guide to all the UK's secondhand and antiquarian bookshops, bookrooms, and market stalls.  Add your bookshop here


27.11.15. The Cheshire Book Centre at Frodsham is closing on December 12th - until then all remaining books are £1.00 each. The owner, who also runs Berwyn Books at Buckley in Flintshire, intends to open a retail unit there in the new year. (Thanks to Chris and Norman for drawing this to my attention.)  Add a comment

25.11.15. Healthy Planet, the charity behind the Books For Free shops has ceased operating without telling their volunteers. A statment on the now deleted website read: "The move comes after a year of investigations into claims of fraud and heavy financial losses which were a direct result of CEO Francesca Polini and the current trustees blowing the whistle on a number of financial irregularities.") I'm only surprised it's taken so long.  Add a comment

24.11.15. 'A noble survivor from a more robust, less sanitised age of bookselling. Floor-to-ceiling shelves even in the doorway ...' and all the other recent reviews.  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 to add your shop now.

Perhaps 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.
