6.06.18. Chris Harte went to the Penn Bookshop which is closing this Saturday and quality of the stock is excellent and the prices are rock bottom. He also reports that Copperfield's of Wimbledon is closing at the end of July. "Joe, the owner, is moving to North Lincolnshire and has 73,000 books to sell in a bit of a hurry. There are many bargains to be had with massive reductions, as I found out to my pleasant surprise. All books are categorised and range from Art (large holdings) to zoology."  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.
