This is another fantastic modular. It's beautiful from the outside and very well detailed inside. It's unique, plus it's a bookstore, so that by itself is a win for me!

This set is lovely. It's not particularly difficult, but there are a couple spots where inattentive builders could go wrong. All the other reviewers appear to have completed it in just a couple hours, but that seems too quick to me. If I were building as fast as I can, (which I very much don't) I still don't think I'd come close to that. It's small for a modular, but the price reflects that. The colours are brilliant. There are a few nifty building techniques used, enough to keep it interesting. My set came with an additional bag of 1x1 light grey bricks, to replace the ones in the numbered bags, which are too light a grey. Credit to Lego for catching and correcting that. Overall a worthy purchase and a set I'll display proudly!

Recommendation: meh by Adam White

When I first opened the box from Billund, I was a little underwhelmed. It didn't look as fun as the Garage or Diner. But then I started the build and I instantly get why people love these sets so much. The details and build techniques used throughout the set are very clever. The smallest of elements can make a big visual impact, especially on the exterior of both buildings. The rear of the building could have been fleshed out with a little more detail and the side of the building are very plain as expected, but it's the front of the set you see the most. Sure some of the rooms are also a little sparse and the Bookshop lacks a few actual books but the rest of the set provided an intersting and engaging build. As I've not built any past Modular sets it's a little difficult to compare this to anything else, but for my first experience of the range, I will definitely build future releases.

Recommendation: yes by Huw

For one reason or another last year's modular, 10264 Corner Garage, was not well received but I do not think that will be the case for this one. It is superb, and in my view the best since 10243 Parisian Restaurant. After a couple of American-inspired buildings it's good to be back to something more European. It's colourful, varied and attractive. It uses the latest pieces, often in novel ways, to create interesting architectural features. The teal colour is wonderful. In fact, I like the set so much I'm running out of superlatives to describe it. Even the price is fair: in fact it's less than last year's Corner Garage for a similar number of pieces.

Recommendation: meh by Andrew

My favorite modular building is 10246 Detective's Office from 2015. Like 10270 Bookshop, it features two buildings, but they're integrated with each other rather than being on separate baseplates. Many LEGO fans have asked for another side-by-side pair of separate buildings like 10190 Market Street (2007). However, I'm not convinced that the extra modularity is worth the tradeoff in parts from the interior walls, resulting in a much smaller build than most other recent modulars.

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

The final model really is beautiful! I like the two different architectural styles and how they work together, but also technique-wise there was a lot to discover which made it a fun build. When it comes to the interior I can't really compare them to the previous models as I haven't built many of them. But from an objective point of view I think they are fine.
