Welcome to the home of children's books
Bags of Books, is an independent children’s bookshop based in Lewes, East Sussex.

We feel passionately about helping children to find great quality books that will inspire them to become readers for life. We seek out those really great children’s books that we know kids (and parents!) will love… We know that sharing books with children is a wonderful and important thing to do and if you can't visit our bookshop then we hope this website is the next best thing. If you have any questions or need any help please don't hesitate to contact us on 01273 479320

We can order any books for adults too. Just call us on 01273479320.

Bags of Books Reading Challenge 2024

This year we have decided to challenge ourselves to read our height in books. Many of our customers ask us if we read ALL the books in the shop. Well here’s your chance to see just how many we read.

We have decided to review and log all the books that we read (well, the children’s and YA ones) so that you can see what we think of them. At the end of the year we will pile them up and see if we’ve hit our targets.

Why don’t you join in with us? We would love to see your photos, tag us on Instagram, @bagsofbookslewes.

What they are saying about My Year of Books....

It was such a pleasure to see my Grandchildren’s faces when they opened their My Year of Books on Christmas Day.  This is a gift that gives on giving!!  Rachel, Nika and Jo definitely know how to chose the right books.
