About Us

Paragon Books was founded over 20 years ago and is still going strong as Sidmouth’s only independent bookshop.

We are well known throughout the town for our wide range of books to appeal to all ages and interests as well as our next day (in most cases) order service. If there’s a book you want, we’re almost certain we will have it or can get it for you!

Looking for inspiration? A gift for someone, or even yourself? Come and see what we have in stock; we keep a selection of unsusual books which might open up avenues you hadn’t considered.

We also sell and accept National Book Tokens, so if you can’t find the perfect book for a gift, you can give the lucky recipient a way to find it themselves and save yourself the work!
