  • Really nice book store. I found the presentation of the books very thoughtful and felt like they understand what you are looking for in a particular section. The price might look a bit higher than other used-book stores but I found, almost whatever I checked, in very good condition (better than other stores in my experience). The stock was really good. You can even bargain! :D But I spent more than I intended as I got discount.. :( But I am coming back soon.
  • Skoob is a decent second hand bookshop. They do give themselves an honest self assessment on google by saying that they have a lot of books to rummage through, you do need a bit of time in here for it to be worthwhile.
