Big Green Bookshop
Last night I went to the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green, London, for the first time (for @bookcunt’s launch party), and it was so lovely. It’s a tiny little space crammed full of gorgeous books, with well-thought-out displays and a little children’s reading nook full of the brightest and best picture books.
I bought two books:
…The Deception Artist I had only heard about maybe the day before, so when I saw it on the display table in a moment of serendipity, I had to buy it. Wonder has been on my wishlist for a while.
Displays aren’t restricted to new books, and I got a bit squealy seeing this lovingly nestled on a table among other great fiction:
The bookshop owners clearly have great taste, and indeed Simon Key, who was there at the time, was lovely and chatty and clearly really passionate about books.
They do a lot of events - see their website for more details - and also have a really cool ‘Twisitor’ board which visitors can sign with their Twitter username. I spotted a few famous names, including Caitlin Moran.
All in all, it’s a lovely place and well worth a visit if you’re ever in London. Support indies!
