While in London recently, I decided that I'd like to get a kindle so that I can read more books when I travel. I had heard that Waterstones sell Kindles, so I came to this store to see what they had on offer. Well, they did indeed sell a range of kindles and e-readers, and the staff were very helpful and informative, even going as far as to recommend some new books which I may like to download and enjoy. It was a great shopping experience, and I'm really pleased I chose to buy here rather than online.

I love this store because they always have really good book offers and discounts. I picked up a great new cookbook by Jamie Oliver which was 50% off - so I got it for £15 instead of £30! Sometimes books can feel really expensive, so when Waterstones do book discounts I always indulge.

This isn't the biggest Waterstones and they don't have a many academic and non-fiction books, however they do have a really good range of fiction books. The location is very convenient so even though there are bigger Waterstones with more book in London I tend to come here the most. They don't always have what I'm looking for, but you just need to ask and they will check on the system and let you know if other branches have stock.

The staff are very friendly here, but unfortunately they just don't have enough science fiction books. I read sic-fi books more than any other genre, and I came in here hoping to add some new books to my collection. However, everything they have is very mainstream. It would be nice to see a larger range with some slightly more obscure authors and titles.

I like this Waterstones as they not only have a good selection of books, but they also sell very nice London souvenirs which make great gifts. They are much nicer than the souvenirs which you get in cheaper shops further up Oxford Street. I also bought a nice mug for my wife. Even if you're not much of a reader or bookworm, you may well find something in Waterstones that you'll like.
