The Big Comfy Bookshop Coventry

Based at Fargo Village, The Big Comfy Bookshop provides thousands of second hand books of all genres from pulp crime fiction through to travel, art, cooking and all in between. With hundreds of shelves bulging with books, there's something for everyone.

Open 7 days a week, while-away a few hours in its relaxed environment with a cup of coffee and homemade cake, or even treat yourself to our freshly made jacket potatoes from the new lunch menu.

There is a wide variety of children's books and a cosy kids reading corner for them to read, colour or play. The bookshop is also host to a variety of childrens events, story times and craft activities.

In the evening the bookshop transforms into an entertainment space hosting music, poetry, book clubs and more, and with a bar serving real ales and wine, it is a great alternative night out.
