The Pitshanger Bookshop

141 Pitshanger Ln, London W5 1RH, UK – 020 8991 8131

Knowledgeable, helpful, and can order books for next day. Also sell excellent cards, games and other literary accessories.

This is an excellent bookshop on Pitshanger Lane, even if just to browse. The selection of books (including children's books) has clearly been made with great care. The members of staff who work there are very helpful and friendly to chat to, and always ready to give recommendations if you ask them to based on other things that you have read. I have used Amazon in the past but have discovered that often there isn't as much of a tailor-made selection, and the value of picking up something hand-picked in a charming modern bookshop like this from real people cannot be underestimated. I have also used Pitshanger Bookshop to help me track down a hard-to-find US edition of a book. They also have great bargains when they change their stock, the likes of which cannot be obtained online. Also check out their events with local authors. Highly recommended.
