13.05.16. Eric T. Moore Books are closing their shop in Hitchin on June 26th but until then there's 50% off all non-internet stock - new titles added daily. The business will continue online.  Add a comment
    All is not what it may seem. It is very unclear what is reduced in price and what not. Assuming that ‘the internet stock’ was what was behind glass, or elsewhere, and that the purpose of the sale was to get rid of things, I enjoyed a long ‘browse’ in an interesting stock which yielded a small pile to buy. Only when the price had been totted up did I learn that 95% of them were not among the ‘selected items’ in the sale. So, just one book bought. Don’t go with high hopes of low prices. - James Mackay 18.05.16.

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.
