Memento Mori

Almost a year on, here’s a video of our event with Karl Ove Knausgaard, kindly filmed by our friends at Vintage Books. What an amazing man!

All Yellow

The weather may be uninspiring, but our window is full of sunshine – we’ve filled it with yellow books to celebrate the Easter weekend! And there were plenty to choose from – including Zoe Williams’ Get it Together. We’re looking forward to hearing Zoe speak at L&R on the 21st, in conversation with Anthony King. […]

New Bag!

We’re so excited to introduce our new overnight bag – the third of our sturdy canvas bags to be produced by Re-Wrap. Featuring a brilliant design of book covers by our favourite illustrator Serge Seidlitz, it’s the perfect size for a couple of nights away. You can buy them in the shop for £35, or […]

Bookish Love

We love hearing back from anyone we’ve recommended books to, and all the more so when they’re also colleagues! So continuing the tradition of getting honeymooners to tell us all about what they’ve read on their post-wedding breaks, we asked our Jane and her new husband Serge to share their honeymoon reading… SERGE: Honeymooning in […]

Clocks and Guests

It’s been quite the starry week at L&R with visits from two of our favourite novelists for informal signings. Sarah Waters popped in on the 29th to sign her fantastic new novel The Paying Guests. Set in the 1920s, we can’t really tell you any more than that to avoid giving the plot away! Then […]

World Book Notes

As today is both World Book Night, and A’s birthday, we’ve been celebrating by giving books to passers-by (including this traffic warden). The books are all wrapped, and even we aren’t too sure what’s in them, so it’s a surprise for everyone! Do pop by if you’re in the area today.

A Moveable Feast

We’re really happy to be taking part in Friday Feast again this month. The deal is that you pick up a card from one of the participating shops or market stalls, and collect stamps (or stickers in our case) until you have six (you can get a maximum of two from each participant), and then […]

It’s a date

We’re really pleased to be part of the brilliant Books are My Bag’s Bookshop Advent Calendar campaign, and as part of it, we’ve chosen four books that we’ll be giving to our nearest and dearest this Christmas. Claire recommends: Janet Malcolm – Forty-One False Starts (£20 Granta) I’ll be giving my sister, whose taste is […]

Signed Up

We’ve got a veritable plethora of signed books at L&R at the moment – including some of our favourite books of the year, like Love, Nina, The Goldfinch, An Officer and a Spy and Jeeves and the Wedding Bells. If you’d like to reserve one, give us a call on 020 7229 1010, or drop […]
