Buy books at Clerkenwell Tales

A decent little independent bookshop on Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell, Clerkenwell Tales was founded in July 2009 by owner Peter Ho, apparently as a reaction to a frustration with larger bookshops, and a desire to found shop with a community, a goal which all the best bookshops seem to share.

Well over three years later, the shop seems to be thriving and is a joy to visit, as your author discovered when he popped in yesterday. Books are beautifully laid out over the relatively small interior, and regular events and a monthly book club are also on offer. “We’re not intellectual, but opinionated and enthusiastic”, the owner told blogger art-lit-geek and where bookshops are concerned, that's often the best way to be.
