This is a great little second hand book store on Stoke Newington Church Street, and I can only think of a few ways that it could be improved. The main thing it is missing is a sense of romance, which for me, is a key element of a second hand book store.

Ahh, I love this little shop. It's one of those 'run by a scary looking man who's shop is so crammed with books you may get 'lost'.'
