This is my local bookshop and I really like it.

The staff is extremely friendly and always eager to help you finding what you are looking for. They'll never push you to buy, so that's the main difference between them and the other bookshops around. The shelves are well-stocked with books for every reader and you can find some rare books that you won't find anywhere else.

Clapham books is the closest thing to perfection when it comes to bookshops. The selection is superb although I usually look for science fiction. The staff is extremely polite. helpful and knowledgeable. I can never just come here for 10 minutes and leave with the book I came looking for. It's more like a 3 hour stay during which I have bought at least 5 books.more

Great shop mainly because they have a wide variety of books. I'm not the typical reader and hardly find books that will make me read them. In spite of this I went out of this bookshop with at least one book.

When I'm in a mood to read something or want to buy book as a present I go there, knowing there are enough books to choose from and they wont kill your desire after first chapter.more

Friendly staff who will go out of their way to help you or make recomendations are what sets this fun independant store apart from the normal chain options.

They stock some intersting and unique books here too, it's a fun place to browse and buy alike. If they don't have what you're after, they can have it ordered in by 3pm the next day and they'll send you a text to let you know you can...more
