October books in Southampton, is outside of the city centre on Portswood Road. A lovely independent bookshop, the store has a great range of books, including a large collection of penguin classics. The shop offers a 2 for 1 deal on many of its books including the penguin classics, of which we picked up two to buy (including one by George Orwell, whose other books I’ve enjoyed). I also picked up 2 children’s books ‘Heidi’ and ‘Anne of Green Gables’ which I had never read and would one day like to.
They not only have a lot of lovely books, but also sells less mainstream magazines, that you may not find in many other shops. This shop therefore, is perfect for anyone who loves unique magazines or people who like me are doing a journalism course and want to study a range of magazines.
I would definitely like to revisit this shop in the future, in order to take advantage of the 2 for 1 offer and to buy magazines.
