Our Independent Booksellers Week project has come to an end! Day 6 sees Lisa visit Watermark Books, in London King’s Cross Station, very close to Platform Nine and Three Quarters (see a map here).
Here’s her take:

‘Right next to Platform 9 3/4 (and hordes of tourists lining up for photos is one of the treasure of the new Kings Cross Station!). A great indie shop with lovely staff: the perfect stop before boarding your train…’

Booksellers Week project continues! Day 5 takes us to theatre bookshop and cultural landmark Samuel French, just a few steps away from our office (find the bookshop on the map here).
Read more about Fede’s visit:

Samuel French Theatre Bookshop is literally a few seconds away from our office on Euston road and it’s filled with all sorts of theatre-related books: from Shakespeare, to the American greats, to local up-and-coming playwrights. Interestingly Samuel French functions as a bookshop, as a publishers of stage scripts, and as a licencing agency. The staff is very passionate and recommended two plays: a classic (Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the world) and a bright new thing (Penelope Skinner’s Eigengrau, which premiered at the Bush Theatre in 2010)

Can you tell it’s a theatre bookshop?

Day 4 of our Independent Booksellers Week project and we’ve decided to visit one of our ‘locals’, iconic LGBT bookshop Gay’s The Word, situated in the heart of Bloomsbury (find them on a map here).

Here’s what Fede had to say after his lunchtime stroll:

‘Another great indie to add to our list. It might be “the fountainhead of queer literature in Britain” (as Armistead Maupin famously said), but Gay’s The Word is full of wonderful titles that even a more mainstream audience can enjoy. Indeed, the true beauty of this shop is its range: from Booker Prize winning writers to unknown debuts, from big publishers to tiny presses, Gay’s The Word has a brilliant, brilliant selection of books. Plus they run a lively programme of events and they’re just about to start selling their books online…’

Another busy morning for Two Roads! On Day 3 of our week-long tour of some of our favourite indies, Fede has ventured out of the office for a sunny walk in Primrose Hill, where he visited the charming Primrose Hill Books, run by Jessica and Marek, on one of London’s most beautiful streets, Regent’s Park Road (have a look at

Here’s Fede’s take:

A truly special place: Primrose Hill Books might be tiny, but it’s packed with a fine selection of titles. Jessica and Marek are simply the loveliest booksellers I’ve ever met and they are truly part of the community: the locals trust their recommendations and so did I, buying two books they raved about… They run lots of well-attended events with both local authors and bestselling writers, and publish a catalogue of their favourite reads twice a year: a Christmas selection of beautiful gift hardbacks, and a summer reading list filled with the latest must-reads in paperback. Their customers trust their judgement so much that they often receive orders via email pre-Christmas just based on those lists…

A busy morning for Two Roads! On Day 2 of our week-long tour of some of our favourite indies, Lisa has paid a visit to Lutyens & Rubinstein, the beautiful shop on Kensington Park Road (find it on a map here). The brilliant staff had dozens of fantastic recommendations: take a look at our pictures below for more.

Here’s Lisa’s take on L&R…

I am lucky enough to have Lutyens & Rubinstein as my local bookshop. I’m always coming out of there with great recommendations (I may have the largest collection of L&R bags ever). Chatting to Claire Harris today, I came out with these fabulous books for my summer reading, complete discoveries for me – and oh, another bag…

To celebrate Independent Booksellers Week, the two roads of Two Roads have embarked on a week long tour of some of their favourite indies, in the hope of meeting passionate, inspired booksellers who would recommend new books to treasure and share.
Today Lisa visited the brand new Foyles shop and was greeted by a bright, welcoming space, a huge selection of books, an inviting cafe and an intriguing new read: Mark Forsyth’s THE UNKNOWN UNKNOWN. Check out the pictures below and come back tomorrow for more indie love…
