Mr B's Emporium Of Reading Delights, Bath

4.9
#4 of 33 in Shopping in Bath
Quaint and charming, Mr B's Emporium Of Reading Delights has something for everyone. This little independent bookshop is as educational as is it quirky. Grab a book from an old-fashioned bathtub, and curl up in an easy chair in front of a cozy fireplace. You'll find a variety of books to choose from, all seemingly hand picked for their originality. The store also offers the unique chance to sit down with a librarian one-on-one, munch on tea and cookies, and discuss your reading interests. After the discussion, the librarian will then provide a long list of book suggestions that meet your interests. The shop is known for its high level of service, due in part to its knowledgeable staff.

  • I would wholeheartedly recommend buying someone a book Spa! If they're not totally into reading it's a good way of getting them a bunch of books to give reading another try. And if they LOVE reading it's a great way to try books they may not normally choose. The staff really know their stuff and are so helpful and friendly.
  • What a delightful place. I just absolutely adore this shop. It's quirky, beautiful and just absolutely delightful. It truly is full of amazing reading delights. If you are a book lover then you need to visit this shop. The staff are always do knowledge, super friendly and approachable. I can't wait for my next visit.
  • The book shop of book shops. Hundreds upon thousands of books in ra really quirky little shop with lots if twitsts and turns. Ever bit wall if not stacked high with books is decorated with lots of inspiration to set your imagination free. An imagination that can be really channelled and directed through the cook therapy sessions held here to discover even more stories to your life.
  • Best bookshop ever. A fabulous variety of books combined with very knowledgeable and engaged staff make every visit delightful.
  • It's an absolutely amazing bookshop! It has lots of varieties, very kind and helpful workers and organized shelves. It also has a nice atmosphere when you're inside, and it's not as small as it seems! It's one of my favorite places to get books
