28 REASONS AVID READER IS THE WORLD’S GREATEST BOOKSHOP (ACCORDING TO OUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT)

Sure, we’re proud of our extensive events program, numerous bookclubs and much-loved cafe, but there is no better way to get to know what a business is really about without going behind the scenes. Here are some reasons from 2015, courtesy of our Instagram account (which you should totally follow), why Avid Reader is the world’s greatest bookshop.
