Really good selection and layout to this bookshop just around the corner from Voltaire and Rousseau. Price varies but mostly between 4-12£ which is decent. Friendly staff too.

It's a place where you can find very useful books. Of course, they are used ones, but there's more choice to find anything you want. I gained that experience, having been before it in other book stores in the centre of city. But there're only...More
