Booklover Oxford is a conscientious and trustworthy UK based independent second-hand book business established in 2006. We sell in the UK and internationally, quality second-hand books on all subject matters and back-issue American comics. In 2012 we moved away from our Oxford ‘bricks & mortar’ shop to concentrate on our online business.

The owner of Booklover Oxford Julian Tester has been buying and selling books since 1996. Julian has been an avid collector of books on many subject matters for his own interest since leaving school. It was in 1995 that the ‘penny dropped’ that he could continue his love for book collecting and source others with their books from a fellow ‘booklover’.

If you are collecting anything in particular or would like a better description of a book you may be interested in please feel free to contact us, either by email at or using the Contact form link at the top of our website. We aim to provide an answer to queries within 24 hours of receiving an email.

We use PayPal as the ‘third party payment provider’ for our website payment transactions. All major credit and debit cards are accepted including Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, etc. This means you do not give any sensitive bank account or credit or debit card details to this website, but all your details are processed safely & securely off our site via the PayPal website. Note: you can still use the shopping cart even if you do not have a PayPal account, as the PayPal website will show an option for completing a transaction as a ‘guest visitor’.
