October Books

October Books
Speciality: Co-operative

More than just a bookshop: we’re local, radical and eco-friendly!

October Books is Southampton’s premier independent bookshop.

Owned by customers and staff, and worker controlled, you can find us in the heart of Portswood’s independent high street. From here, we supply local residents and students with the latest releases and classics, ethical, fair trade and organic foods, green cleaning products and toiletries, and our popular range of quirky, beautiful and thought provoking greetings cards.

In these uncertain times of social distancing and self-isolation we know many of you might be stuck at home.

With an army of volunteers on bikes ready to help us out we are now offering free delivery services to SO17, SO14, SO18 postcodes. We can also post books outside of these addresses with postage approx £2.95 for the first book.

Order through our website, by email or on the phone.
