Skoob books is my absolute favourite secondhand bookshop. It's not pretentious, it's in a basement, and I literally spend about an hour every time I go just browsing and thinking hard what to spend my student Budget on.

I loved it! New and old books from all kinds over than half price cheaper than in a normal bookstore. It was lovely to discover and to enjoy the spirit ofthis little place. Loving books? Must go here!more

Can't really add much to the reviews here. Second hand books piled everywhere, cool place to just chill and browse. Generally friendly staff. Definitely a place to visit, even if all you want to do is breathe in the bibliophile atmosphere.more

The staff is friendly and will help you try to find what you're looking for - they all seemed to actually LIKE books...more
