Friendly Bookseller Looking For a Room

Hey Hackney! I have to move out of my lovely room in Lower Clapton on February 9th and am very keen to stay in the borough (life without the marshes – unthinkable), So, this is a call to arms. I’m looking for a room in a flat or house share. I’m friendly, tidy, a fan of all things bookish and of London. I’m a bookseller, so I come with quite a library (lots of fiction in translation). If anybody hears of anything, give me a shout. I’m looking to spend £550 pcm max. Thanks! Gary


  1. Hi Gary, Just wondering if you’ve found a room yet? We have a lovely one going on Glenarm Road. I’m afraid it’s £615 plus bills so perhaps out of budget but give me a shout if you’re interested. Anna

  2. Hi have you tried Spare and Gumtree ? Just a thought ….

  3. Hey Gary! I am looking for someone to get a 2 bedroom flat with for around the same price as you are looking for.If you are interested in this (and still looking) email me! Sarah (

  4. Hey all! Thanks for your responses. I’m very much still looking – the search has been going on for a month now. Yikes! Anna – I really appreciate it but it is sadly beyond my budget. 🙁 Lindy Lou – yep, i’m religiously checking Gumtree, SpareRoom and MoveFlat – those sites are pretty much burnt onto my retina. 🙂 Sarah – I’ve just sent an email your way.
