About Mostly Books

mostly books opened its doors in July 2006. It is owned by Mark & Nicki (bookselling novices when they started) and assisted by a fantastic team of hardworking book lovers: Ellie, Karen, Julia, Oliver and Simon.

We have tried to create the kind of bookshop we always loved to visit, and many booksellers (both in the UK and worldwide) have given us advice and support, without which we wouldn't be the shop we are today.

We'll try to stick some more biog stuff up on here in the near future - but for now, follow our progress from our first stumbling steps to the most recent events on the mostly books blog.

If you haven't visited us yet, we look forward to meeting you soon - come and have a coffee, a browse and a chat.

Best wishes,

Mark & Nicki Thornton
Mostly Books, Abingdon

mostly books is situated at 36 Stert Street, Abingdon. Park in the multi-storey, or alternatively you can park for 1½ hours for free at Waitrose - it's about 3 minutes walk from there.

Green bookshop

We recycle everything in the shop, and we've gone to great lengths for our eco-friendly plastic bags.

Our first day

What was our first day like - find out here.

Our official opening event took place a few weeks later.


In May 2008 we were awarded the inaugural New Bookshop of the Year 'Nibbie' at the British Book Industry Awards.
