Welcome to Books Alive

We are located on Elm Drive in the West Blatchington / Hangleton Area of Hove – free parking or hop on the number 5 bus which stops almost outside.

We stock a comprehensive range of Bibles, Christian books for children, youth and adults, Bible reading notes and Sunday school material. We also stock music CDs and DVDs, a range of beautiful cards and gifts suitable for all the Christian celebrations.  In addition you can buy stamps from us and also National Book Tokens Gift Cards, which can be spent in any participating book shop.

We are delighted to be open again.  You will still have plenty of time to buy your Christmas cards, wrapping paper, gifts etc.  and in particular we have some really lovely children’s books so it will be well worth a visit.

You can still ring to order in advance if you know what you particularly want –

please telephone 01273 738818 or email info@booksalive.co.uk and Gillian will get back to you as soon as possible.

We will continue to have a presence on the Bookshop.org website but we’d much prefer to see you in the shop!

This is at https://uk.bookshop.org/shop/booksalive where you can see our latest recommendations, but also from there you can order any other books (including non-Christian titles).  Just make sure that you are seeing Books Alive at the top of the page for us to benefit from the commission!
