We liked the book store and the selection of books, although for the condition and age of the majority of books they are way overpriced. For two books we were looking at $20 aud. In Australia these would of been worth $1 or $2.

While they don't have a huge selection of books, they do cover most bases. The owner of the store is a nice older man, really adds to the charm of the place. You can find most top sellers here, and a large variety of less...More

Randy's shop is a great stop for some new books there are copies of bestsellers and also second hand books. It's pretty tough to get so many English books over here so the collection he's got is fantastic. Keep it up Randy.More
