Bags of Books has been proudly serving the community in and around Lewes for over 20 years.

We care about ….

Books!  We believe that books are innately precious things.  We believe that books should be respected and treasured and talked about and passed on and moved from home to home and loved by generations.  Books can widen your understanding, inspire the imagination and take you beyond yourself.

Our customers!  We believe there’s a book out there for everyone and that everyone is a reader.  We are committed to striving to understand the needs of our customers and continually evolving with them.

Our staff! We believe that the people who work here are our most valuable asset.  Our knowledge, dedication and passion fuel the business and make it a place where we are proud to work.

Our bookshop!  We believe that the best way to buy a book is to spend time browsing in a bookshop.  We love providing people with a place that they can explore, where books can be discovered and handled and picked up and flicked through until one feels just right.

Our vision:

We know that sharing books with children is a wonderful and important thing to do.  By maintaining a culture of genuine excitement about books and a welcoming setting, we aim to be the place that people want to come to to find books.  We aim to be a valued part of our community; a place where people young and old feel comfortable and a part of something special.
