This book shop is an amazing jumble of floors, shelves, plies and puddles of books. From expensive antiques to valueless paperbacks .. ask the owner about anything and then enjoy the conversation, he's great and unique. For book lovers this is a destination to visit...More

Great shop, great guy. Full of humour. Could spend days here. Well worth a stop if you are nearby. The other reviews had me in hysterics. Clearly not appreciating the jokes....

My friend and I almost walked past this gem of a book shop, but luckily, we decided to go in. We bought two travel guides to Switzerland from 1904 and we had a lovely chat with the owner. The only negative part was that we...More

Rodney was lovely - very welcoming and reminded me of home. Would have loved to spend hours browsing as the shop looked incredible, but didn't have time. He was very kind and welcoming, and I'll definitely go back if I'm there again. Got a perfect...More

This is an amazing bookstore! My friends and I entered this magical place and didn't know what to expect. We saw books spilling off of the shelves, so much so that books were facedown on the floor. There was no one to be found so...More
