Bookmongers secondhand bookshop, a Brixton institution, has been a constant on Coldharbour Lane since 1992, and is widely known for its unique atmosphere and independent spirit.
We're famous too for our animals: dearly departed dogs Leo and Rosa are commemorated in artwork inside and outside the shop, while the pugnacious Popeye, a former stray cat and veteran of Brixton market, is currently very much in residence...and something of a star on our Instagram site! (https://www.instagram.com/bookmongersbrixton/).
We aim to provide a relaxed, comfortable and welcoming environment for booklovers of all ages, and a meeting point and sense of continuity for the people of Brixton...
...Obviously, with lockdown, that's not currently possible, but we are still operating a click-and-collect service locally (from https://bookmongers.com/) and are pleased to now offer a further, vast choice of reading matter, via Bookshop.org, delivered straight to your door.
We've put together the following collections, which are just our personal suggestions and recommendations of books you might enjoy, but obviously YOU'RE FREE TO SEARCH FOR AND CHOOSE ANY BOOKS FROM THE ENTIRE WEBSITE. Happy reading!
