11 reviews of Clapham books in English
This is a favourite bookshop of mine. I’m not a big reader, but the majority of book I own, mostly local history books, I have bought from here. Also has a good selection of maps.
Thought I’d add this poem to my review.
There is a local bookshop
It’s a favourite of mine
When I want to buy a book
I use it every time
It may not be a big place
But they have a good choice of books
From politics to biographies
And even some for cooks
So if you’re in the high street
In Clapham at some time
Pop into Clapham Books
It won’t be a waste of time
Maybe one day I’ll make a book
Of these poems I compose
And do a book signing in the shop
Slim chance of that I suppose.
This is a great bookshop. Three things to praise (among others): really helpful, efficient, knowledgeable and interesting (and tolerant) staff (e.g. if they don’t have something, they get it the next day and call you; great advice on books, too); really good bang-up-to-date new fiction, with an eye for what else is new (and off the beaten track); really very good children’s section (basically as good, in fact, as the specialised children’s bookshop 10 minutes drive away). Very highly recommended.
I love Clapham Books. They have a superb wide selection of books from classics, gay fiction, graphic novels and quirky gifts and a lovely little section for kids. They also have some great limited prints.
Helpful and friendly service too. I would love it if they brought back their bargin bin but we can't have everything!
So much better then your run of the mill bookstore - remember kids, go indie!
This is a really nice Little local bookshop. It hasn’t got everything but as the last reveiw points out it will order anything. It has a fair selection of current fiction and non fiction releases and then seems to concentrate on selfhelp/psychology books, kids books, film books, gay books and travel - which probably says more about Claphamites than the bookshop itself. Good to browse around on a wet Sunday.
A nice little book shop in between Clapham North & Clapham Common tube stations. Polite staff and a good selection of new releases as well as classics. They used to have quite a good 99p bin here but i am told it is now no more! Ho hum. I tend to come in looking for 1 book and end up leaving with 5!
Polite staff, good location and open til 7pm weekdays and 6pm on saturday and sunday.
