  • Nice independent bit pricey, but works out well on some as all books are half of RRP

  • I found this bookshop casually while walking in Bloomsbury and I must say it has been a fortunate and enchanting circumstance. Once you climb down the stairs (there is a lift for disabled access too, which deserves my fifth star) you can find tons and tons of books sorted by subjects. The shop displays the items not only on the shelves but also on pieces of furniture and other supports, which confers an unusual look to visitor's eyes. Personally speaking, this place recalled me my grandpa's workshop, where I used to venture when I was a kid: an apparently decadent place where every shelf held a surprise. In my particular case, I browsed the History section and I found it extremely interesting. Selling second-hand books means the titles you find may vary according to the books the shop receives, but the selection is really remarkable. You can find many specialistic books and, more important, not only the usual topics you normally find in other shops of this kind. Prices are excellent and even if I didn't purchase anything, the volumes I found interesting have already a copy piling up dust on my shelves, I will be coming back to Skoob Books every now and then to dig their assortment and hopefully find some hidden gem.

  • Possibly the best second hand bookshop in London. Fantastic staff, varied selection and great prices. I bought the Exegesis of Philip K. Dick there for £12.50 (massive book!). Most are around £4.

  • I've spent a lot of time, and money, in used book shops over the years. Skoob is one of the best.

  • Absolutely stunning and one of the biggest second-hand book shops in London. The place is obviously crammed with all kinds of books and you can always find hidden gems for bargain prices. Moreover, the staff are extremely helpful and always ready to exchange a few kind words with you. If you are looking for something particular or just spending free time, definitely a place to visit. Keep up the good work Skoob Books!
