BookLovers of Bath

Beautiful books… for beautiful people…

Welcome to the website of the leading book dealer in Peasedown St. John


Based in the bucolic paradise of Peasedown St. John, one of Somerset's largest villages, BookLovers of Bath can be found in a real book shop: Fact or Fable on the Bath Road in the centre of the village. The shop contains around 3,000 books across a few selected catalogues and a carefully chosen variety of knick-knacks that I may, or may not, be prepared to sell should you have deep enough pockets.

This site is "all-new", as of around July 2018 and I am still working toward perfection. In the meantime, please browse around my small offering of secondhand books. Remember, buying a book here, now, today helps to feed the Jack Russells and ensure I have a peaceful nap mid-afternoon!
