Today I thought I should give some advice for anyone who might be interested in purchasing used books in London. I know you’re probably thinking that London is a big city and finding a good used bookstore shouldn’t be a problem, especially now that we have the internet to help, but there’s only a handful of bookstores that I’ve had success in over the years, where I always found rare books in excellent condition. Today we’ll talk about one such bookstore.
Finding good books in London – best used books stores
Skoob Books is a second hand book store located in The Brunswick Center, at Marchmont Street in London. Bookstore spans some 2000 square feet in which they managed to stock over 55.000 different book titles. I spoke to an employee there on one occassion and he told me that the book store replaces around 5000 book titles each month.
Isn’t that impressive? I usually go there and just browse for hours on end in search of interesting book titles. Sometimes I end up finding a couple of books, sometimes I go home empty handed. On average though, each visit at Skoob usually means that I’m coming home with a good book title, a small piece of history. I highly recommend for you to checkout this store. It’s more than worth it if you are looking for good books.
