Annoying neighbours…?? Haha.
Wondered into this gem today… an independent old book shop called #hurlinghambooks in SW London. As if I needed another reason to love this city, this beautiful tiny old-fashioned shop is lined wall to wall with 2nd hand books, and offers a quiet place to lose yourself as your eyes wonder nonsensically, charmed by the various titles. It’s one of those absolutely magical London discoveries. If anything, just go for the old book smell - a rare thing today indeed. The man behind it all, Ray Cole kindly gave me 2 books, for nothing but as a thank you for some entertaining chat, and revealed that the shop only holds a fraction of his entire book collection. Ray promises to take special orders so if you want a particular title, he’ll find it for you. For anyone who truly loves books. www.hurlinghambooks.com #books #bookshop #oldfashioned #london #londonlife #londongems #shop #fulham #putneybridge #oldshops #thekindnessofstrangers Full write up on the blog later… x
