Today I visited Blackwell’s, a bookstore that has been a fixture in Oxford since 1879. I’m not 100% certain on this, but someone told me that it is the largest bookstore in the UK! If it isn’t the biggest, it certainly has to be in the top 5! The shop was five stories, including the cavernous basement called “the Norrington Room.”
Despite the fact I was in there for hours, I only bought one book. I knew that I would be mailing back any books I bought, so I only wanted to buy a book if it wasn’t available in the States. I came away with Amenable Woman by Mavis Cheek.
