16.01.17. John writes of the Croydon Bookshop - 'Found it permanently closed today and the building apparently for sale - a huge loss'.  Add a comment
    I was very sorry to find this bookshop closed. I have been going there for 25 years, and some of the stock had been there so long it made a visit like seeing old friends. It had long since fallen on hard times but a new manager had been doing his best in the last few years to revive it with fresh stock. The sad demise of the suburban second-hand bookshop – there are only a few left in London now. The pitiless march of progress. - Michael Ross 20.01.17.

9.01.17. I've just added Heygates Bookshop in Bognor Regis who say they have a'large selection of pre-loved, new, out of print and collectors' books, as well as modern first editions'.  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.
