Run a bookshop? Our self-storage Bicester will help with you stock

Whether your bookshop is brick-and-mortar or online, you may find yourself in need of extra space for your stock. Our self-storage Bicester can help.

Bookshops are on-trend, with the number of independent bookshops in the UK reaching a 10-year high. At the end of 2022, there were 1,072 across the UK. This is even more impressive when we think that many areas of business are still struggling after the pandemic. 

Why are bookshops on the up?

Surprisingly, it is believed that booksellers actually benefited from the pandemic as people had more time to sit and read a good book

Some credit also has to be given to the TikTok trend, BookTok. BookTok is a corner of TikTok that is devoted to people letting others know what they are reading, book reviews and what books they love. The BookTok community as a whole has over 60 billion views and it is reigniting young people’s love of books and giving others excellent book recommendations. 

This is wonderful because reading is extremely good for us.

Why is reading good for us? 

Reading is good for us for a multitude of reasons. It will:

  • Help you to learn new things 
  • Improve your focus and concentration
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Reduce stress
  • And even help you to live longer

Reading is able to improve your focus and concentration because it encourages you to only focus on one thing. Reading a book requires all your attention and for you to be present and engaged. 

It is able to help you with communication skills as reading every day increases your vocabulary and has a good influence on your own writing. It also improves our ability to empathise with others as it increases our ability to understand how others are feeling. 

Research has shown that just 30 minutes of reading a day will help to reduce blood pressure, heart rate and distress. 

As for living longer – a study has found that people who read lived, on average, for two years longer than those who did not. Daily reading helps to stop age-related cognitive decline. 

So, we all need to get reading!

Running a bookshop

If you run a bookshop, the chances are that you are already a great lover of reading and books. And you will be well aware of all the benefits. 

With the increase in people wanting to read and discover new books, you may be struggling to keep up with stock demands, particularly if you run an online store and are trying to store your stock at home. 

Our self-storage Bicester is here to help.
