Bookshop of the Month - May 2013:
Word Power Books, Edinburgh
Word Power Books is a leading quality independent bookshop formally opened in 1994 by Booker Prize-Winner James Kelman. An inspiring and creative haven set in the heart of Edinburgh, Word Power Books is a place where the value of books is recognised. Whether you’re tracking down an established classic or venturing outside of the mainstream, Word Power is sure to be able to help you on your journey. The attention to books, customers and sales that Word Power offers is unique, and the shop has strong ties to the independent publishing community in Edinburgh, often hosting events for visiting writers.
‘Word Power Books is not an only one of the last remaining independent bookshops in Scotland, but a hub for independent thought itself. It is a hive-mind of the anti-mainstream and the leftfield, run by people who are committed and passionate about real books and aren't just there to flog product. Word Power Books makes Edinburgh a much better place.’ Alan Bissett - Author
