Overview
More
The People's Bookshop is an independent, radical bookshop in the heart of Durham City. Dealing mainly in second-hand books, we aim to fill the gaps left behind by the headlong rush towards best-sellers, e-books and add-on sales. We believe that bookshops should reflect their communities and radical bookshops are an important part of the creation of a better world.
