We’ve just re-stocked the basement and we have loads of fiction this month. We have lots of modern fiction, a good poetry section, crime fiction, westerns, horror, fantasy, sci-fi and a good selection of children’s books including Ladybird editions, lots by Enid Blyton and Alison Uttely and much more. We also have loads of cookery books, theology, natural history including ornithology books and history, travel, social sciences and a small art section.
We’ve just completely re-stocked the basement and we have loads of books on food and cookery. Some are quite old (early 20th century) and others are more recent. It’s an extensive collection covering cuisines from many different countries and there are some great covers to be found. But it’s not just cookery here, we’ve also got loads of railway and theology books this month and lots of other subjects too!
The basement will be closed on the 3rd and 4th of February for re-stocking. It will re-open at 2pm on Tuesday the 5th of Feb with thousands of fresh titles. We’re expecting lots of crime fiction, occult and mysticism, cookery, gardening and natural history. We’re keeping January’s large theology sections and classical studies books for another month.
Our basement re-opens at 2pm tomorrow (January the 8th).
We have loads of books on Christian theology. Also lots of Greek and Latin literature and ancient history, lots on Native Americans and the American Civil War, foreign language literature, linguistics, poetry, Shakespeare, natural history (especially ornithology) as well as all the usual subjects.
We also have new titles at Francis Edwards and our new Art and Architecture catalogue is out. Get in touch if you want a copy: email@example.com
Jimmy Kanga was one of our favourite customers. He sadly passed away a few months ago and we’ll miss him. Here are some photos of Jimmy that Sasha took in the old shop back in 2006. There’s a lovely obituary written by David Tobin of Walden Books on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/Quinto.Bookshop
