About us

We started Pigeon Books for three reasons:

1. We LOVE books.

2. We love Southsea.

3. We couldn't understand why no one had yet opened an independent bookshop in Portsmouth, especially Southsea. 

So Pigeon Books was imagined as a far away idea, an "if I ever win the lottery..." type-dream. But then one day we started thinking that maybe there was a way to start small, start with a pop-up here and a market day there, and start to be part of the Southsea community while we look for our permanent shop space... so here we are.
