This is a fantastic bookshop, good enough to challenge the behemoths of the bookworld You cannot fail to find something to interest you, and,if you cant...it can be ordered. Good service from real people...its worth every penny.

A lot of classic books discounted here. Good prices on a lot of the art books too. If you can't find anything you like here, then you don't like to read.
