Meet the Team:


Michael - Founder of The Booksmith

My love for books has got me into trouble on a number of occasions. Whether it be reading on the way to work on the train and missing my stop. Laughing out loud at inappropriate times when the humor of a writer jumps off 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 into my shop in Weedon Bec as well as many worldwide customers I get to chat with through email. 


Lori - Manager of The Booksmith


I have always loved reading and enjoy a wide genre of books from Crime to Sci-fi! I was 11 when Michael started The Booksmith and love bringing a dirty old book to life and making them neat on their shelves. I run the shop in Weedon Bec and also manage the Social Media for The Booksmith and it's fantastic! I meet so many lovely people here.


Mystery Person

We used to be situated in Sutton Coldfield on what used to be an old farm and the building we are in although now surrounded by houses, was used to strip the 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!
