Local Bookshops


3-7 Union St, Aberdeen AB11 6BG, UK – 01224 592440

A general staple if you're a book-lover although I will say that they often don't have a complete series of books and focus too much on authors who are already famous instead of helping out authors who really need the publicity

Good bookshop which I visit most weeks. Great staff who, without exception, are friendly and knowledgeable.

Blackwell's University Bookshop

99 High St, Aberdeen AB24 3EN, UK – 01224 486102

Lovely staff, great range of stuff, only issue for me is not bein open at the weekends

Old Aberdeen Bookshop

140 Spital, Aberdeen AB24 3JU, UK – 01224 658355

A small but very well-stocked used book shop near the university. Worth a visit for any bibliophile. The Philosophy and Literature selections are especially good.
