About Us

Tim West and Simon Key opened the Big Green Bookshop in March 2008, after the big chain store where they worked in Wood Green closed, leaving the area with no dedicated bookshop. After much joy and much frustration and a huge amount of help and support from the local community the shop opened its doors to fanfares and cheers and a cake or two.

With over 35 years of book selling experience between us and over 47 cups of tea and coffee inside us, we’re trying to offer the kind of bookshop that we’d like to visit ourselves, a bookshop with a thoughtful range of titles, friendly knowledgeable staff and some cracking gems that surprise and excite us. We love our books and we’ll do our very best to make sure that when you leave you’ll look forward to coming back again.

If you want to know more about us and the shop, you can read our blog, which will hopefully keep you mildly amused and relatively interested at the same time.
