The abundance of bookshops that make Charing Cross Road the destination for texts of all types can be overwhelming. To steady yourself, head to Blackwell,which proudly (and rightly) refers to itself as “Knowledge Retailer,” covers history and academic subjects (drama, literary studies, religion, and politics). Note: Seven other Blackwell branches are also to be found in and around London, so a new (or even secondhand) best friend is always within reach.
