BRITAIN’S MOST ENJOYABLE BOOKSHOP
What a boast! MOST enjoyable?? MOST BOASTFUL perhaps! The earlier motto was: A Bookshop for the Majority of Minorities but latterly our job has become to help you have a DAY OFFLINE!
And this remains accurate. What we SPECIALISE IN is SURVIVING, and we can only survive in this beautiful but congested and hidden place because we offer the Complete Bookshop Experience and a service both Quirky and Competent.
While boasting, we also boast New Books (40,000+), Second-Hand (50,000+), Rare and Antiquarian (5,000+), Music, Café, Publishing.
According to an old friend, Brian MacDonald, ‘Books are alright for when you’re young, and when you’re old and past it, but in between, what’s wrong with real life?!’
Or to quote a very recent overheard conversation or SIGH OF THE TIMES, ‘AAAHHHH -WOW! Fantastic – How much are they? – A LOT!’
“So, welcome to the BAFFLING website of Scarthin Books, a sort of One Stop Bookshop, notorious for being also a Long Stop Bookshop. We have separate new and second-hand sections on all subjects.(“What All?”, “Yes All!”, “What All?”, Well, nearly All.”), though we often need to ask each other where New Cycling or Second-hand Canals or Chess has got to.”
