Our Favourite Books
We all have favourites, booksellers being no exception. This section of our website has the books we like best: fiction, history, children’s, gardening and pretty well every other subject. Some are new, others old. Some are already classics, others we think may be the classics of the future. We update the lists regularly as new books arrive or we rediscover forgotten gems. If you have a favourite you think we should include do let us know.
To order any of these books please email email@example.com, telephone (020 7493 9921) or, better still, visit the shop. We are open from 9.30-8 Mondays to Saturdays and 12.30-6.30 on Sundays. We look forward to seeing you.
