One of the places I will miss the most in Brixton is also one of the places that I frequented the most. Brixton Bookmongers is yet another treasure in this constantly shifting neighborhood. The bookmongers is one of the few cultural treasures that has lasted few the latest round of urban development in the area. Founded and owned by a Boston native (Patrick), it is a place to find a number of hidden literary treasures. The majority of the book reviews on this site are from books that I just happened upon at this site.
If you ever find yourself at the end of the Victoria line on the south side, be sure to make a left out of the station and a left on Coldharbour. The shop is piled high with books loosely organized by genre with a wandering Staffordshire Terrier ensuring no books are lifted.
