The new volunteer and not-for-profit team of Jon Morgan, Roger Blake, and Adrian Hindle-Briscall has also introduced a new map element and the site is more smartphone-friendly than before. It retains all the former elements, with bookshops listed (for free) by region and includes recent reviews from customers who have visited them, though outdated comments pre-2018 have been partially hidden. A graveyard page lists all bookshops that have closed down, and there are plans to add lists of book fairs and sales which the former guide also featured. The site is sponsored by Bytemark Hosting, which means it is advertisement-free.
“The site is a labor of love,” said Morgan. “Our aim is to help both the secondhand book trade and all those who love books by bringing them together, especially after the closures of the Covid pandemic. Once a secondhand bookshop, a lighthouse of culture, is gone, it is very difficult to replace.”
