Today, I went to Bridgwater to visit the wonderful Snug Bookshop and Cafe. This is a charming bookshop, full of book-ish treats and delights! Light, spacious and inviting, there is certainly something for everyone in this lovely shop- including delicious cake!
Books are located towards the back of the shop, catering for all ages and tastes. Table displays offer focus on particular themes or highlights; a selection of Judith Kerr books on one, a range of books about the moon and space on another. Everything was beautifully presented and easy to browse.
It is always a joy to find a fellow book-lover full of enthusiasm and knowledge. This is a shop where you can be sure of good advice and recommendations and a lovely welcome. A steady stream of customers- some obviously regulars- came in whilst I was chatting and browsing.
Not only does The Snug Bookshop sell new books, it also has an appealing range of well presented second hand book in a room to the right of the main shop. Further tables for the coffee shop were located in this area, giving an uncluttered feel to the whole space.
The shop also boasts strong relationships with local schools and is keen to support teachers provide the best for their children- and they are lucky to have such a brilliant bookshop nearby!
