Buy books at the Barnes Bookshop

Your author is currently in the middle of a month-long stay in West London, where things are different to the real world. Last week, during a trip to Barnes, discoveries included a charity shop where a pair of shoes cost £99, a church which is closed on a Sunday, a very smart looking cinema and the Barnes Bookshop, a small shop owned by Isla Dawes, who also owns bookshops in Kew and Sheen.

The Barnes Bookshop is on two floors with its bright basement a treasure trove for the browser, and plenty of books and gifts on the ground floor for those who don't like stairs.

  1. Are people still reading books these days, or is everyone moving to kindles and so on? I personally will never move away from books, but I am of a lost generation probably.

    1. They seem to be, Hels, and I think that's a good thing

  2. They seem to be reading books, or they seem to be moving to kindles?? We must know!
