Cash for your books

Everyone wants to offer you cash for your gold, we want to offer you cash for your books. If you have any books in good condition you can bear to part with please feel free to contact us. We can't promise that we will buy any and every book that is offered to us so it would be a good idea to provide a brief description of the books before lugging them up to our shop.

Why books?

It is not only the body that needs nourishment, but also the mind. Aldous Huxley believed that a good novel should be like a holdall, packed full of ideas and concepts. The internet has changed the way that we communicate with each other. Websites such as wordpress and twitter are great tools, however, most things worth saying usually involve more than 30 words. In our modern world we often overlook the humble book.
