13.11.17. Holly Kemish from the National Trust writes: "I was very pleased to see Belton House's secondhand bookshop listed on The Book Guide and particularly pleased to read the positive comments from visitors. As the largest conservation charity in Europe, secondhand bookshops within the National Trust are a vital way of raising money to undertake essential conservation work at our many places and landscapes. Also, when supporters buy a book at a particular property, their donation directly supports that place." She asked if other properties could list their secondhand bookshop and I will be adding them all in the coming weeks, starting with the Midlands region, which range from "from tiny sheds crammed full of books to large shops with beautifully displayed stock."  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.
