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.

  • This is possible the best bookshop I have ever visited. It has a large eclectic range informed by great curation and recommendations. I could have spent hours browsing. It has a quirky layout that seems to be a converted house, it's important to explore the whole thing as there is a basement and a first floor with each room having a cohesive theme. I also noticed some people taking part in a "book spa" of personalised recommendations and was very envious of the piles that were being created of new writers the participants might like.
  • Cute little independent bookshop with lovely armchairs to read and browse. The staff are really helpful.
  • This is what a bookshop should be like! Drinks, chairs and even toilets-you could spend hours here. Lose yourself amongst the stacks of books and enjoy advice from the passionately knowledgeable staff!
  • Super friendly staff and a really nice book selection! Having the natural light coming in the windows makes the shop feel airy and comfortable. A very pleasant spot to find a new book!
  • Great selection of fiction, children, history great staff and recommendations upstairs. As well as free refreshments and comfy nooks to read
