New book shop opens

For those trying to find THAT book, a new book shop in Sea Road could be your answer.

It may not be the world's largest store but shop owner Paul Bethell will track down that pesky publication.

Boldwood Books opened its doors last week and already has inquiries for obscure folios.

Mr Bethell said: "We chose Bexhill because there is no large chain bookshops here. We sell new books direct from the publishers.

"I've been in publishing for the past 15 years and wanted to do something different. It's quite exciting.

"I like reading sports biographies, travel writing and military histories.

"At the moment I'm reading Stephen Fry. "

The shop stocks books from traditional classics, military to modern popular fiction.
