 Michael - Founder of The Booksmith

My love for books has got me in to trouble on a number of occassions. Whether it be reading on the way to work on the train and missing my stop. Laughing out loud at in-appropriate times when the humour of a writer jumps of the page and smacks you between the eyes, or the fact that I surround myself with so many books, my wife has trouble finding me!! Either way, I love books.
Creating The Booksmith has given me the opportunity to share my love for books with customers who drop in to my shop in Sutton Coldfield as well as many worldwide customers I get to chat with through email. 




John looks after the day to day running of The Booksmith. Whether it be carefully packing the online orders, or recording new stock arriving daily, John ensures that all the books are in the best possible condition for our customers. 

John has also established himself as the flat pack guru as over the last few years has put together over 100 bookcases. Why not pop down and see his handy work..




My name is Claire, and I help out with all aspects of the day-to-day running of the shop.  I especially like to help organise special events for the shop and spread the word about what we can offer.  I also enjoy creating a nice inviting atmosphere for people to come and browse.  I have always felt at home in bookshops.   I love all kinds of fiction from the classics to contemporary authors.   I also have a particular fondness for the childrenís section as itís often where someone first discovers a passion for reading.  I live with my husband John and a naughty tortoiseshell cat named Sophie who often keeps me company as Iím curled up with a book!


Alice is our newest member of the team.
Mystery Person

We are situated on what used to be an old farm and the building we are in although now surrounded by houses, was used to strip bark off trees and various other heavy duties. 

Over the years we have been there we've often seen a shadow walk past us whilst working and the odd book has been found on the floor. There's nothing scary about the fact that we have this mystery person, just wished it wasn't such a book critic!
