Don't worry! The virus hasn't won.

We're just renovating the shop (and the website) while things are quiet. We'll be open again as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we are still buying books! So if you have books that you want to give a second life, drop us an email or call the shop so we can chat.

We love to buy books we love to read, but also we really like buying books others love too. We're a small shop, so we need to buy quite carefully. We have a soft spot for literary fiction, poetry, philosophy, science, mind-bending sci-fi, and the weirder slices of world history.

If you have a bigger collection, consider sending us some photos. Socially distanced pick-ups can be arranged from around the Edinburgh area.
