Mon to Sat : 9 am – 5 pm
An award-winning independent bookshop located in the heart of Abingdon. Mostly Books offers an excellent range of books, greeting cards, gifts and children’s toys. The team can source most titles ready for collection the following day (subject to availability). They can order any book that is currently in print and even track down some that are not. The team are happy to deliver books within Abingdon for no charge. If the books need to go further afield, they will happily arrange delivery for a small cost. The Mostly Books team has recently grown with the acquisition of a second shop, The Borzoi Bookshop in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Check out the panel discussion for International Women’s Day on Facebook with Mostly Books owner, Sarah Dennis, and her chat to Rosie and Lindsey on the Indie Oxford Podcast about the value of community, the joy (and fear!) of being the decision maker, and her top tips for starting a new business.
Being in the book trade is the most satisfying job in the world! We love meeting our customers and suggesting books for them that they may not have tried before. Being so involved in the local community is really important to us and the support we’ve received from customers all around Oxfordshire during the pandemic has been unbelievable.
– Sarah Dennis, Owner
I absolutely love Mostly Books! They are brilliant at recommending books whether it’s for you or a gift, and the shop in Abingdon is so welcoming and friendly. I used their website a lot during lockdowns to find great books to send to friends and family.
