4 reviews of The Readers Rest in English
I first discovered Readers’ Rest when I had to stop for air halfway up Steep Hill. However, I was soon wandering around the cavernous shop (it goes out a long way at the back), full of rare and secondhand books of varying ages. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the books reasonably priced.
First climb half way up Steep Hill. Don’t admit you are completely knackered but instead take a rest inside the aptly named “Readers Rest Bookshop”.
A very old shop with multiple rooms and corridors jam packed with second hand books. I have found some real treasures here.
There are a few bookshops in Lincoln but this is the best! Hours can be spent in here.
Books start at 50p and they had to open another shop (an old chapel I think) across the road to accommodate all the books.
With more than 60,000 titles, this is a book lover’s paradise and they will also buy books if like me you have thousands anyway.
It is a bit pointless me selling boxes of books to them because..what do I do? I look round and buy more books.
