Mr B's

I want to dedicate a whole post to Mr B's! This was a fantastic bookshop in Bath that I visited and highy recommend.

Mr B's - the best bookshop I have ever encountered

Located on John Street in Bath, it is a wonderful independent bookshop ran by two ex-Lawyers, with help from their family and lovely doggie Vlaska. On the website there is even a whole page dedicated to Vlaska, she is quite the star! The selection of books is amazing, it covers 3 floors and offers actual personal recommendations and the staff seem very helpful and are available for help on recommendations - all being bookworms themselves.

On the 1st floor there is a little 'bibliotherapy' room, which is a lovely warm fire, 2 comfy chairs and free tea and coffee! So you can curl up with a book and a cup of tea and not feel like you're wasting anyone's time - which is one of the great things about Mr B's. You can really get lost in it and spend hours in there. We actually visited twice on our visit and must have spent about 2 hours in there in total! It has such a nice atmosphere and you can tell that they really LOVE books which is the best thing of all.
