19.06.17. Jeremy Briggs writes: "News from a friend in Northern Ireland is that The Old Abbey Bookshop in Holywood, Co Down is closing as the owner has decided to retire. I don’t know the final date but he said that they are having a 50% off sale at the moment. That is a loss because whilst it was small it was really the only secondhand bookshop in the greater Belfast area that could have been considered antiquarian.
    "He also tells me that due to a potential redevelopment of the whole Cathedral Quarter in Belfast city centre, the two bookshops in North Street, The Bookstore and Atomic Collectables, are both in danger of losing their leases before the end of the year but are continuing to trade in the meantime."  Add a comment

18.06.17. I've just added the All Saints’ Book Cafe in Birling, Kent. At the moment it's only open on the third Saturday of each month but if they manage to attract more customers they might open more frequently.  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.
