Recommendation by Lemi
On Charing Cross Road, Any Amount of Books lures passersby with bins of one-pound paperbacks. Venture inside to see first editions, vintage books, and leather-bound antiques lining the far wall. Look further, and you’ll see fiction and non-fiction packed on the floor-to-ceiling shelves all over the shop. Descend into the basement for even more. You’ll always be spoilt for choice, as the turnover is high and the titles on the tall shelves are ever changing. Mr. Nigel Burwood, the man behind the shop, is highly selective when it comes to his collection. You won’t find romance, magazines, or textbooks, but he covers an extensive range of topics. Art, Biography, Children’s Literature, Design—just go down the alphabet of what’s available!
