The second life of books

We call our serving the community “The second life of books”, it is our proud aim to buy and sell books in a responsible and ethical manner. We have two great shops which are located in the heart of Arundel and Chichester where we sell our books with all the care and attention they deserve, unlike other second-hand bookshops, we do NOT sell online. Every book has a unique story and deserves more than to end its days in landfill.

What books do you sell?

We have over 50,000 books in stock covering most subjects and genres. According to our customers, Kim’s Bookshops are one of the best places to shop for books in Sussex. Out two shops are well organised and staffed by friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable people ready to assist you whatever your requirements.

How we buy our books?

We purchase all our second-hand stock from private individuals. New books come directly to us from wholesalers and publishers and usually arrive the following day.
