Good Quality Second Hand Books
Second bookstores are disappearing at an alarming rate as they are being overtaken by the digital age and online book stores. But opportunities are still out there for those who search for good quality second hand books.
The Strand Book and Record store in Port Elliot is keeping the flame alive for second hand books and music. This very tidy and organised shop is a haven for music and book lovers. Its shelves are organised into categories and it has a wide-ranging scope of reference, fiction and first editions for sale.
Second hand bookstores have an eclectic range, which is half the fun. Finding titles and topics that you may have read long ago. Authors and titles that are out of print elsewhere are here. There are those who will go straight to their favourite genre and those who love to fossick through the whole shop. I am a fossicker and there is a huge range to search through here.
