    Oh what a fantastic idea! Good luck!

    I went to Borzoi Books in the Cotswolds and that was utterly delightful – I think the Cotswolds and the Lake District both have lots of indie bookshops, and I know of a couple in York too. Kenilworth Books is absolutely ace, and you should check out their twitter if you haven’t already! There’s also this amazing place, The Book Barn, near me, which is GIANT. It’s second hand books, but well worth a visit if you get a chance: http://www.astleybookfarm.com

    I look forward to reading more about your adventures!

      Thank you!! I don’t think I’ve been to the Cotswolds, so that’s definitely an area that I need to tackle! Have added your bookshops to my spreadsheet. I feel so ashamed – I went to Warwick Uni for 3 years and I never went into Kenilworth Books! I have no idea how that happened.

      Omggggg that looks so good! There’s a similar Book Barn down in Somerset which is also absolutely huge! I bet you could spend a good couple of hours in there 🙂
