Totally dead when I attempted to visit, through the window it looked bereft. A thoroughly wasted journey. - trading.ava 05.04.11. I am not sure what shop the last reviewer is talking about! The Bookworm is a lovely, friendly little shop, great for getting recommendations and general browsing with a host of regulars to bump into. - Liz 07.04.11. Vast selection at excellent prices, the lady that runs the place is very friendly and really knows her stuff, well worth a visit. - Bobson 09.04.11. I am a regular cutomer here and also attend the after-hours book clubs. Really friendly, the owner is welcoming, interested and eager to help her customers. I highly recomend visiting, either to browse or for one of the clubs and/or socials! - Steph H 11.04.11. As a regular "Bookwormer", I strongly recomend visiting either as a customer to browse the stock or as an attendee at one of the after-hours book clubs or socials. I agree, the owner is excellent; welcoming, interested and helpful. - S.Holyhead 12.04.11. This shop is lovely. I have never left here without a good chat about books and something interesting to read, often, but not always, exactly the book I came in for. - 84CharingCross 12.04.11. I have only been once, but I called ahead first and the owner had kindly dug out all she could find that I'd expressed an interest in. Had a lovely conversation to boot. This kind of customer service is rare indeed these days! - Michael 19.04.11. The bookworm is a little gem in Carshalton. The owner is welcoming and very knowledgeable about a variety of books. She has recommended some brilliant books which have alway been relevant. Its also a pleasure to pop in, have a chat and see what new books have arrived. - Claire 19.04.11.
