Book Trade – New Foyles bookshop opens in London

Wow @Foyles. A major new bookshop opened in London’s Charing Cross Road last Saturday.

Foyles at Charing Cross Road, London

Now this really is a bookshop! It was still a bit rough around the edges when I was there due to the earlier move and has no cafe yet (this will open shortly on an upper floor).

The range of titles is tremendous, as is the easy access to eight levels.

If you’ve seen this brilliant new Foyles shop, you’ll appreciate that good bookshops are not dead yet. The shop was heaving at 7pm in the evening with customers buying armfuls of books.

The Christianity section is good with a decent range of Bibles, but I’m not sure it’s quite as extensive a department as in the previous shop? Anyway, well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

A month long ‘Grand Opening Festival’ is due to start this weekend. ‪#‎Foyles107‬

    I spent many hours in the old Foyles when I lived in London. Had
    lots of crooks and nannies and you always found new places to
    browse. I look forward to seeing the new one–looks huge, and
    v encouraging news.

    Blessings
