Hudson's book shops


master brummie
I knew Hudsons very well for a time. I was a Local college librarian & we bought all our books from them. I then moved on to Birmingham Public Libraries. Again, Hudsons had the contract to supply BHam Libraries with books & what a joy that was. Weekly visit to the Book Purchase Dept to look at the weeks new books from Hudsons, choose appropriate titles for library I managed & look forward to their delivery.
I think Pentos took Hudsons over before it became part of Waterstones.

The old Hudsons store at it's peak was truly an incredible place with an incredible range of unusual titles as well as best sellers.
