I was incredibly impressed by their selection of books and original postcards. The shop is almost more like a museum than a store, with each book carefully selected and almost curated. You can see that the shop belongs to someone with a passion for reading.

It is absolutely more than that. Besides offering an excellent range of well-chosen English language books, Slothrop`s cosy atmosphere is enough a reason to visit Tallinn! Yeah,it is worth visiting Tallinn only for this bookshop. Go there, buy books and talk with cool proprietors!

Slothrop's is one of the greatest highlights of my visit in Tallinn! The shop is really cosy and I was happy to find so many books in English. I liked the selection of books too. If you like books, you should really go there!

Just slightly off the main stream through old town of Tallinn, Slothrope's offers a place to inhale book store ambiance at its truly best. A high diversity of second hand English language books and a fine selection of locally self published / niche print products....More

I thought this place was an antidote to the big-box stores. The guy who was working actually knew something about literature.
