Books for a pound! and sometimes they're marked less! The only problem is that the books have specific order, so don't go in thinking you'll find a certain books. Just take the time to browse and bask in used books, I love the way you can see what they've been through.

With 3 separate shops along the same street, one specialising in Soul & Dance, one in Rock & Pop and another in DVDs, between them this is probably the best place in London to look for rare or out-of-print CDs and vinyl, and a pretty good place to look for new CDs and upfront promos.
