The window display of the Bookstore in Bury Street, Abingdon has a big twenty because The Bookstore first opened in November 1998.

As always the Bookstore has a display of the latest range of books and cards to attract you inside.

    Congratulations to the Bookstore; it is an excellent shop. Thirty years ago I was reading for my PhD (my midlife crisis). Twenty years ago I was reading Italian grammar books, trying to acquire another language.
    Now I’m reading John Grisham, Lee Child, Michael Connelly and Allan Mallinson…

    I remember opening this store and several others that year, also opening nursery groups and welcoming pasters.

    I think this store and Dunmore nursery group are the only 2 things that are still here.
