Welcome to Monster Bookshop

Monster Bookshop was founded in 2008 by our current owner and Managing Director, Laurence Reynolds. Our core principle has always been to offer the widest selection of books at the most affordable prices. What started as a bedroom enterprise during the midst of a recession soon took over the family home to take on our first warehouse in 2009. Since then, we have now grown to become one of the UK’s leading ecommerce book retailers, stocking over 6 million pre loved and new books. We operate our business in the most sustainable manner by packaging all products with recycled material that can be recycled time and again.

  • Recycling Pre Loved Books

    There is an estimated of 320 millions books that go into landfills around the world each year. We believe reducing this number is key to reducing our carbon emissions by reducing, reusing and recycling.

    By buying a pre loved book, you are contributing to saving the planet, reading one book at a time. So, thank you from us for doing your bit!

  • Supporting Small Business

    As an independent retailer, we are a small team of avid book lovers employing local people with big hearts.

    By supporting small businesses like ours, you help contribute to keeping the divese community of independent book sellers alive.

  • Building a Sustainable Future

    All packaging materials we use are made from recycled materials and can be recycled again and again.

    You can also recycle your unwanted books with us via our Recycling Scheme.
