About us

We are a knowledgeable team of self-confessed reading addicts who have been selling beautiful and important books since 2012.

Our charming independent bookshop is situated in Edinburgh's Stockbridge, where you can find an ever-changing collection of fiction and non-fiction for readers of all ages. We hold close to 2000 titles covering all genres of writing from cookery to travel, kid's picture books to science fiction - and many more in between.

In 2020 we launched our online bookshop, which you can browse here. We are a small shop so if you are searching our online shop but don’t see the title you’re after - get in touch with your request and we can usually order it in for you specially within 48 hours. 

To complement our literary stock Golden Hare runs an extensive events and workshops programme featuring author talks, book signings and our own reading group. We also have our own monthly reading subscription called PostBooks, and a membership scheme with loads of benefits including an amazing 10% members discount.
