Broadway Bookshop
Broadway Market

This Hackney independent benefits from its position on the canal end of popular Broadway Market. A smart layout and intelligently weighed stock boost its appeal further. The shop is a thoughtful enterprise, promoting small publishers like Eland and stocking lots of New York Review titles, plus interesting reprints of forgotten gems. There’s plenty of top-drawer literary fiction and a large travel section that’s strong on London and local history. The second-hand collectibles have become more popular since last year, with punters keen to get their hands on old Penguins and 1930s and ’40s hardbacks. The shop is also a permanent exhibition space, promoting local artists.

Because coming here is such a wonderful experience - with atmosphere and friendly help and all the things you would never get online (!!!)

You can find books here that your mainstream chain won't have - I can spend ages scouring the shelves for an unexpected find.
