193 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 6SH, UK – 020 7937 8432

Lovely selection of books, if you just step inside because it is raining something wonderful will catch your interest. Ordered a book some months ago, they never got back to me and whenever i go in to ask the response is 'still waiting for this to arrive from USA'. This seems a little odd when I have experienced only impeccable customer service over the years.

My fav. The best ginger book seller I have ever met. I mean, good looking nice and funny. Can you want anything more. So staff is really nice, books are great. I higly recommand.
