An amazing local bookshop

After reading the shameful news about Amazon’s tax dodging schemes in Europe and the US, I decided to return to purchasing books from local bookshops whenever possible. To that end I happened upon a shop that opened about a year ago in Eltham. It’s run by Zoe, with moral support from Andre her partner.

The shop is quite modern, but still welcoming. Although it’s not a 4 storey Waterstones, the books they choose to stock are all of excellent calibre. I walked out of there with several great books after a fascinating education in literature by Zoe who opened up new literary vistas so to speak.

As well as meeting nice people, you can also discover new things when you visit bookshops. For example I happened upon the new Flipback books, which are very cool.
