Welcome to our page on uk.bookshop.org
This online shop was designed to give Amazon a run for its money offering discounted books to our customers who prefer to shop online. All books are sent from a central warehouse, where they are picked, packed and sent direct to you, allowing us to offer every conceivable title available. The books on this website do not reflect the stock we hold in our shop and unfortunately it means that collection is not possible, but delivery is only £2.75 for 48 hour tracked postage, a one off charge, regardless of how many books you order. But please don’t worry, if you purchase from this site, it is the same as purchasing direct from us, as if you were in our shop, we receive a commission for every book sold 👍
So who are we ?
A Fixture on the Lee-on-the-Solent High Street for over 87 years, The Book Shop is arguably the oldest shop in the village, and probably the oldest surviving independent bookseller on the South Coast. In 1933, Leonard Miles opened a florist’s shop at 142 High Street with a small lending library, which later that year evolved into a bookshop. Flowers out, books in!
The shop is small but the staff are a friendly mix with different personalities that love a chat and a good book.

Holding regular events, authors signings and children's activities during school holidays, and more, they are an active part of the wonderful community that have kept the book shop going for all these years.
