Welcome to my first ever blog post about Books Are My Bag; an organisation to help support bookshops.
I love this idea so much.
Bookshops are so important, and every day they are battling against online stores like Amazon.
Today I am going to talk about my favourite bookshops that I love to venture into.
The reason this post is so late is because I recently just visited one and wanted a picture of the inside. I don't visit there often.
The first bookshop I'm going to talk about is my local bookshop: Fordingbridge Bookshop.
Fordingbridge is where I live, and it is a small and cute village.
I love walking up the road and supporting my local bookshop every now and then.
I really like this shop as it does have a nice amount of all sorts of books and does keep up to date.
They also do a nice deal where for every £10 you spend, you get a stamp. When you collect all 5 stamps, you qualify for the monthly deal like 10% of a purchase.
The next bookshop I'm going to talk about is Waterstones Picadilly. I don't live local to the shop, but my God is it amazing! It has so many floors, and an awesome YA section. They also have a collection of some American editions which I am a MASSIVE fan of. I always end up spending lots whenever I go there.
They also have a nice bar area with tables that you can sit at and have a drink as well as a read. This is a picture taken from a UK Booklover meetup in London with booktubers and bloggers.
Those are my two favourite bookshops.
What are yours?
Don't forget to support your local book stores!
