Barter Books in Alnwick, Northumberland. One of the biggest second-hand book shops in Britain! Free tea and coffee next to a roaring fire plus a cafe further inside that serves food. Yum. Used to be an old railway station. One of my favouritest places to browse for old books :)

WILD & HOMELESS BOOKS,  Bookstore, South St, Bridport, W Dorset, ENGLAND ... ...  “SECOND HAND BOOKS are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.” - Virginia Wolf.

This is such an incredible book. Illustrative book where the bees are disappearing in each page. A book that my sister picked up for her kid from Mumbai. Second hand bookstores have some really interesting books.
