Our website may be new but BookAddiction, the home of beautiful books, is not. Orlando and Jessica are experienced booksellers, between them having nearly 30 years in the used, second hand and collectible book trade. Over this time we’ve built up extensive expertise in book collecting, assessing, describing and valuing antiquarian and collectible books. This means we can offer readers and book collectors a range of beautiful, rare and collectible books with confidence that they are correctly identified and accurately described.
Whether you’re looking for vintage and collectable fiction, informative or research-supporting non-fiction, beautiful bindings, quirky titles or just a good, value-for-money read, you can buy here with confidence, certain that you are dealing with expert booksellers who are committed to bringing you beautiful books and literature at fair prices.
BookAddiction a home-run business. Set in the rural, leafy idyll of Chartham Hatch, a small village just outside Canterbury, we are deeply rooted in the Garden of England. When we’re not book hunting, cataloguing or dispatching books, we can usually be found wondering through the myriad tracks and trails that spiral through our local orchards and woodland – picnicking when we can – or tending the fruit and veg garden out back. We offer our books here at BookAddiction.co.uk as well as on ABEbooks and, occasionally on Amazon and eBay. All external platforms charge fees and commissions to the bookseller. We avoid these charges if you buy from us direct, so we are able to offer special pricing and loyalty discounts to those ordering from us directly on this site or by phone and email.
