Book shops in Weymouth?

We visited Imagine Books last time we were in Weymouth, great place.

Can anyone tell me if there are any second hand bookshops in Weymouth (aparft from the charity shops). Is Red Books still there?

Thanks.

There was one in park street, nr the station, called Books Afloat. Don't think its open very often though, and I think its a bit specialist mainly ships, war, planes and other transport, etc. Sorry I don't know of any other, there was another one near Imagine, but it closed a while back. May be worth looking in Books Afloat, it seems a real "glory hole" of a shop, . Depending what you are looking for, you may find something in the Brewers Quay Emporium. Alternatively Dorchester Market on Weds, has some 2nd hand book stalls.Sorry I cant be of more help

Hi

Than ks for the comments about my shop, Imagine Books. Alas, I have had to close it now. Red Books was also ours - my partners. No longer open. But we are selling online, and we are still in the Red Books building. Go to www.imaginebookshops.com for details. Give us a call, and we will be glad to help. Ann (Imagine Books Owner)

I think the only places to find old books, apart from the charity shops would be the antique centres.

Brewers Quay in Weymouth and Curiosity Centre in Dorchester. Both have lots of different stall holders, and I'm sure some of them would have books.

Thanks for all the responses. We are off to Weymouth again next week, sad to hear Imagine Books is not there anymore.
