Waterstone's ClaphamWaterstone's, one of the largest high street booksellers in the UK, isa relative newcomer on the block. It first opened in Old Brompton Road,London, in 1982 and now its flagship store resides at what used to beSimpsons of Piccadilly - the iconic menswear department store. Itswinning formula is the 3 for 2 offers, endless supply of current pulpfiction and the sheer mass of books on the miles of shelves. It's aformula that has the purists - and plenty of authors - shaking theirheads and, in extreme cases, inciting boycotts. With more than 300stores on our high streets it is difficult to avoid this giant. Howeverwhen you want to pop in for a beach read, to stock up on youruniversity reading list or the latest biography it couldn't be morecomfortable or convenient.
