JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN to get the younger generation into our big bad book habit! Children of all backgrounds need access to books. At bargain prices, it's not cost, but curation, help reading, reading aloud and sharing the fun of books which can be missing. Bibliophile can give all that and more - lifetime in books. With books you are never alone. With books you can lose yourself. Ask us for half a dozen extra catalogues to distribute on your recommendation, please and we’ll pop them in your book parcel.
The picture shows a visit to Bibliophile June 2014 of Rachel and her scout leader Vicky from the 2nd East London Scout Group, collecting books for charity. The smiles are as infectious as their love of books!
BIBLIOPHILE BOOKS has opened its warehouse doors to visitors allowing them to browse at leisure from 8am - 5pm every weekday.
With so many books to choose from, they have the perfect gifts at 50-90% off new books.
FUN starts when you walk though the doors into a massive warehouse on 2 levels with over 3000 different book titles.
"What fun browsing...and finding book titles about subjects I had never heard of.
I spent 2 hours excited about all the books I knew my friends and family would LOVE and I had only just done the first floor!" Dee
Oh and there are also DVD's, not to forget the odd unusual but interesting items, like a swivel car seat which helps people get out of a car, leather bound guest books (Charles Rennie Mackintosh embossed cover) and exciting children's pop up books.
Emphasis is always on QUALITY. Touch, feel, look and enjoy . Take your time.
One is free to roam and take your time enjoying the staggering array of titles. Some books are even signed, so that is a little unexpected 'extra'.
What ever takes your fancy, just ask for a price and you will be very pleasantly surprised.
Books start from 50p, classics from £1 and some of the large books, almost too heavy to hold, are a fraction of their original sales price.
Some books have only just come out and others are not on sale here in the UK or online.
BIBLIOPHILE IS ONLY A FEW STOPS FROM WESTFIELD SHOPPING CENTRE AT STRATFORD. Can be part of day out.
ENJOY A DAY OUT AND GET STOCKED UP FOR GIFTS!
IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO CARRY BOOKS AROUND, THERE IS A POSTAL SERVICE CAPPED AT £3.50 REGARDLESS OF WEIGHT!
There are YouTube links to many books online and a YouTube channel with nearly 600 video book reviews. Have a look at the website:

Remember the weekly literary column by Pooter in The Times before he defected to the Guardian? It was our dear friend Alex, pictured here with Annie at Bibliophile signing his wonderful "bedside" book Writing Talk. It's a Who's Who of literary talent.
We are thrilled to learn today that for services to military history in this year's New Year's Honours list, Max Arthur, a longtime friend of Annie and staunch supporter of Bibliophile, has received an OBE in deserved recognition for his writing on oral military history. Max has brought history back to life through his 'Forgotten Voices' series of war books sifting Imperial War Museum archives, meticulous research and detail.
Well done Max!
