On the southern edge of Bodmin Moor, Liskeard is a delightful Cornish market town. In Barras Street, you can find The Book Shop, a veritable Aladdin's Cave of bookish treats.
The shop is bright and inviting with an excellent range of books on offer, across two floors. Attractive displays make browsing easy and there are some humorous touches around the shop.
The children's section is on the right as you come through the door. It offers a wonderful selection of fiction and non-fiction for all ages. The staff are helpful and friendly- the lady I spoke to remembered my parents who had been in a couple of days earlier!
It was no surprise to find that the shop has been shortlisted for the Best Independent Bookshop for the South West region four times. They host lots of events and are part of the North Cornwall Book Festival which takes place from the 5th to the 8th October. You can find out more about this on the Festival website.
Well worth a visit, you can find out more about The Book Shop in Liskeard on their website.
