We have been very busy finding secondhand books for our many clients this year. More than ever, our services have been in demand and we try our hardest to help all our customers. You can expect to save in the region of €100 on a first year list for secondary school when you ask us to get used books for you. Most of our customers come back to us year after year because they are so satisfied with our services.
Well it’s the middle of summer and we’re in the throes of school book season again.
At this time of year we buy in hundreds of secondhand school books so that our customers can buy their books for the new school term at a reduced cost. You can save huge amounts on your book costs by trading in your used books (in good condition only ) and buying other used books. You can buy all new ones if you want as we stock all the new books too. We are very competitive with our prices .
We also stock all the stationery you will need for school such as calculators, plastic folders in plain and bright patterns, hardback notebooks, manuscripts and copies, pens and pencils , pencil cases and school bags.
So come on down to us for a visit or email us your school list

Now is the time to start thinking about all those people who look forward to getting a book for Christmas. I know I always love to give children a selection of books so they can have some quiet time when the mad rush of excitement over the new toys has become a bit too much. Give their eyes a rest from the xbox or playstation and encourage them into a world of wonder, of adventure, of magic or just pure fun. The old favourites of Roald Dahl , J.K.Rowling and Enid Blyton never go out of fashion.There’s a new Wimpy Kid book out for this Christmas too. And how about a few jokes on Christmas morning, can you really refuse to laugh when you get woken up at 6am with a ‘ knock knock who’s there ‘……
For the adults there are so many great autobiographies and non fiction books which are published to coincide with this time of year – Gay Byrne, Tony Ryan ( of Ryanair ) Alex Ferguson, D.J.Carey, John Bishop to name but a few.
So visit your local book shop where there will be lots of choice and someone there to help you pick the right book.
