Welcome new readers and regular book fiends. I've been exploring South and East London and am bursting to share three amazing bookshops, plus a book podcast. As always my recommendations are unsponsored and fresh.
The South London Gallery is across two beautiful buildings in Camberwell, and has several shops - the main building bookshop is the one you're after. Staff here are incredibly friendly, with a real desire to share knowledge. The book and magazine selection is reminiscent of ArtWords, but with a local South London spin. Museum is free, cafe is delicious so this is a whole afternoon out.
