The best part of our day, without any shadow of a doubt, was discovering this amazingly wonderful independent bookshop; needless to say, we emerged with four books. If funds and our weary arms would have allowed, we would have brought home many, many more books....
Welcome to "Mr B's Emporium Of Reading Delights"!
A very nice selection indeed of children's and Young Adult books,
nicely laid out.....
Always plenty of places to sit and read,
and some wonderfully quirky plays on words!
We saw several people having fun
with the magnetic letters :-)
Not only one floor of books - there is a tantalising
sign showing the way upstairs!
And on the way up, oodles of Tintin comic strips!
Hints, suggestions, laminated sheaves of book reviews
to give you ideas of what you might enjoy reading next.
Comfortable chairs and complimentary tea and coffee
to make your browsing experience even more enjoyable.
The walk downstairs holds poetry galore.
Downstairs itself holds history, politics, religion,
philosophy, current affairs, economics,
health, psychology and more delights.
And a fun ceiling, which I only noticed when
Dear Daughter pointed it out to me.
I blame that on the fact that I am waiting for my new
glasses to be delivered to the Optician's next week!
Friendly, welcoming, helpful and extremely
knowledgeable staff made this the perfect bookshop experience.
They were very happy to allow me to take
these photographs of their super shop.
Do go and visit them at
14/15 John Street, Bath BA1 2JL
if you get the chance - you won't regret it!
