5.10.15. Steve Newmans writes: 'Obviously your readers have not visited Hythe in Kent before. I found the following two bookshops ...' Brenda Books is one of the largest stalls at the Malthouse and offers offers a range of interesting books including local history. And Hythe Bookshop is a charity run bookshop with a good range of fiction and non-fiction books at reasonable prices.  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.
