We would like to make you aware that we now use only packaging material that we have acquired through receiving books; we do not purchase any packaging material other than the outer wrapping which is generally card or padded envelopes. Our aim is to recycle/reuse material that is already in circulation and put to good use non recyclable materials already produced.
If you are looking for a certain type of book click on the book tab on the left and then search by title, author or catalogue.  We are not a formal shop but visitors are welcome by appointment. We are situated about 8 miles south of Launceston, close to Bodmin Moor. It is a beautiful part of Cornwall, so even if you do not find the book you are looking for a visit is worthwhile for the countryside alone!
