I spotted a new children’s book shop near me the other day and wandered in to have a look. The shelves were filled with lots of lovely paperback kids classics and study aid books for ages 4-11 all for £1 each! There has to be a catch. Well, yes there is actually. The guy behind the counter is quite an unusual character who may well regale you with tales about his compulsive gambling, binge drinking and sham wedding. Could just be my ‘unburden everything unto me’ face but if you can’t resist the lure of the cheapest books ever (Christmas sorted!) I would suggest taking the correct change and a getaway driver.
Oh yes, and the address. It is on Hornsey Rise, London N19 on the stretch between Hazellville Road and Fairbridge Road. Will get number asap!
