In recognition of Independent Booksellers Week, which is taking place this week, I decided to take a trip to my local independent bookshop.
As the name suggests, University Bookseller is an academic bookshop that stocks textbooks for courses taught at Plymouth University which is just around the corner from the shop.
The bookshop is spread over two floors with the science and medical sections taking up the basement. In addition to the edifying academic books, the shop also displays a good selection of fiction titles.

There are a couple of good secondhand bookshops in Plymouth, but University Bookseller is the only independent bookshop I know of in the city that sells new books.
Do you have many independent bookshops where you live? Do you use your local bookshop, or do you prefer to buy online or from a chain store?
