What a fabulous bookstore. So much to choose from. You'd be very hard pressed, not to find something for yourself here,... that's for sure. A beautifully kept store and such friendly and welcoming service. Definitely worth a visit for out of towners. We really enjoyed calling by today, and not for the last time, that's for sure.read more

A huge range of literature, fiction, non-fiction and some surprises in there too. The catalogue is updated regularly... (monthly I think) and the customer service is excellent.You couldn't ask for much more from a bookstore.I always check here first before buying from the competitors because the books are in good condition and reasonably priced.Pop in and have a look! Happy reading.read more
