It was a great shame to see the best book shop in London close this summer.

The best homage was this review I found last week, ironically written whilst the shop was still very much in business.

This leaves us with less and less 'real world' venues to browse and buy those old classics. Can anyone out there recommend other institutions worth visiting?

Been there a few times but I'll miss them most from convention dealer rooms.

I think the demise of Murder One, the specialist crime fiction bookshop, was perhaps the biggest sign that specialist bookshops are struggling in the internet age.
