We've had some great events, but sadly they're on hold. Instead, listen to our podcast!


We run an independent bookshop in the historic heart of the market town of Tonbridge in Kent, England. Mr Books has been a feature of the town since 2005 and we relaunched in August 2017 under new ownership.

In the next phase of our life we're inviting the community to get involved - working here, planning events and generally making Mr Books a force for good.

To keep in touch with our plans, events and more, just fill out the boxes below.

Give us your details and we'll be sure to let you know what's happening.
