I’ve mentioned it so many times but I never get tired of saying how awesome The Last Bookshop is. I discovered the Bristol branch almost two years ago on one of my visits to The Boy, and it was only a matter of minutes before I declared it my favourite shop in the world. I mean, how could I resist a bookstore where every single (brand new) book costs a mere £2?
And then a few months ago I moved and I was delighted to discover that my beloved bookstore has an Oxford branch as well. The selection is incredible, I don’t think there’s been a time when I didn’t find at least one book that I wanted to read there. They don’t have brand new releases, but you will have noticed that I don’t read current, trendy books often so that’s never been a problem.
It’s not just fiction books, I’ve built my cooking book collection almost exclusively with books bought here, and I have also bought many lovely, coffee table books. These are books that normally retail for £25 so it always makes me extra happy when I buy a book from here.
So if you ever visit Bristol or Oxford (I believe these are the only stores, would love to find out that I’m wrong) I highly recommend you spend an hour or so browsing the book selection at The Last Bookshop. I would love to hear about your local bookstore in the comments!
