We’re a bookshop in Grasmere, established in 1887 by Sam Read. This is a space for us to tell you our news, views and other things about books which can’t fit into our neat tweet capacity (find us @SReadBooks).

If you come and see us in real life, we stock (amongst other things):¬†Walking Books, Maps, Guides, Classics, Poetry, Popular Science, Philosophy, Arts and Crafts, Children’s Books.
