Who We Are:

Armchair Books sold our first book on the 3rd of May 2014 – Ross Dobson’s Wholefood Kitchen. We stocked a very limited range of books and were still operating as and selling only in the UK.

Fast forward to 2022 and between the three founders, years of ecommerce experience and above all a love for books, especially cookbooks, has been brought together to form Armchair Books, your favourite independent online bookstore.

We absolutely love books and helping people to find and read more books, that is our Live’s purpose.

Working in conjunction with an extensive network of local and international warehouses, Armchair Books pride ourselves on being able to source that special title you just can’t seem to track down locally. Or maybe we can help you discover a new author that you’ve never heard of.  Our online store ships internationally and can source and supply books to almost anywhere in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Our website is conveniently integrated with our warehouses’ inventories, allowing clients to know exactly which titles we have available and where they are being sourced from.   This ensures that Armchair Books offer book lovers a huge selection of books to choose from.  Courier shipping delivers your order directly to your doorstep, and we’ll update you on your order’s progress every step of the way.   It’s the ultimate in book shopping – variety and convenience at your fingertips.

Welcome to our website – we look forward to providing book lovers with all things literary.
