Local Bookshops

The Baobab Centre & Bookshop

2 Batchelor St, Chatham ME4 4BJ, UK – 01634 840862

Love this place of peace. Heaven touching earth. I can feel the prayer that has gone into building this ministry. I have always found what I am looking for every time I have gone there. Welcoming, always friendly and I experience great fellowship. I highly recommend this holy ground to every body who is thirsty for any of these things I have just described.

Really friendly staff and a personal service. I feel more like a friend than a customer when I go in. They're always happy to help you find what you're looking for and give advice or recommendations if you're in doubt. I haven't been to any of the activities, but I hear really good things about them from my friends who do. Baobab is an irreplaceable part of the local Christian community.

Waterstones

182 High St, Chatham ME4 4AS, UK – 01634 828929

Good store for meeting authors, and picking up signed copies of popular books. Not as busy as some other branches near here. Good range of stock and very helpful staff.

Ordered a book you surprise came too quick. Enjoying the book.

Baggins Book Bazaar

19 High St, Rochester ME1 1PY, UK – 01634 811651

A wonderful second-hand book shop. Large and maze-like. You can lose track of time in here browsing the shelves of books covering all subjects. Probably not for everyone particularly those with kids and those with mobility issues as it does feature a lot of stairs and narrow corridors.

I'm not sure if it really is the biggest second hand book store in the UK, as is claimed, but it sure is big. I had noticed it from the train as I was leaving on a previous visit to Rochester, and decided to go back and see it. The store staff were friendly and approachable, and directed me to the fiction section, which is right at the back of the store. It took me several minutes to get there after going up and down a couple of stairs. The store is very well organised. Books are divided into sections, by genre and alphabetically by author which is wonderful. All the books were neatly on shelves and the floors were completely clear of books and boxes. The only difficulty I had was choosing from the huge selection available and navigating back to the check out. Brilliant place for anyone who loves good value books.
