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, from flower arranging to science fiction - and many more topics in between.
Tucked away at the back of our shop is a dedicated childrens’ reading room where any young bookworm is sure to find something inspiring. Complete with a bespoke wall mural and mini-sized reading cushions, our kid's room is also home to Sunday Stories (our popular monthly childrens’ reading club).
In 2020 we launched our online bookshop, which you can browse here. We are a small shop so if you don’t see the book you’re after - get in touch with your request and we can usually order it in for you specially within 48 hours. And for no extra fees of course.

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.
