40-45,000 secondhand books, 5000 vinyl and CDs, art. An eclectic mix of quality second-hand and remaindered/bargain new books. We also sell vinyl records and CDs (mostly s/h) and an assortment of prints, posters, greetings cards and gifts, many created by local independent artists.

A well organised shop with an interesting stock that is well worth a visit. Some of the prices are a bit on the optimistic side, reflecting the fact that a lot of the stock is geared up for book fairs, but there is a good variety as well as interesting vinyl.  Nicholas Pendower 18.09.12
Decent solid shop with a good range of titles.  Jake Kirkwood 22.03.13
Reasonably sized with good stock and prices. Great selection of Yorkshire and history books and plenty of choice for vinyl record collectors too.  Steve Brissle 17.09.13
Excellent opening hours. I've visited twice, on a Sunday and on a Bank Holiday. Can't fault that. Decent stock. The front room has loads of Folio Society books at fair prices and a well stock history section. Other specialist sections are available. Just an ok to middling fiction section. Some music in the back room with optimistic prices for the CD's I briefly inspected. Friendly guy running it. Well worth visiting and supporting.  Ian 04.05.17

A compact range of good-quality books with an emphasis on art, photography and design, philosophy, poetry, film, travel and topography, history and fiction, including Modern First Editions.

Small and a bit book fairy for my taste, more of interest to the collector than the reader.  Jake Kirkwood 22.03.13
Just across the Ecclesall Road from "Books On The Park" at the start of Rustlings Rd. A smaller shop which has very good stock. Bought 2 excellent books - you can haggle a bit with the owner.  Chris K 01.04.14

Misleading address as Glossop Rd becomes West Street in the middle of what everyone calls West Street, i.e. ask for directions to the latter. Small shop with some collectibles and fiction at front, with academic, sci fi and non-fiction plus CDs, vinyl and DVDs at rear. Stock reflects local university student donations. Rare and Racy a stones throw away.  S+S 08.04.13
NWAD. Try the Fulwood Road Oxfam shop - the books are better and they even sell s/h electrical stuff.  Chris K 01.04.14
Small compact well organised shop with helpful staff. Prices at the cheaper end of the Oxfam range.  Steve Newman 06.10.21

Probably the city's largest Oxfam so book dept relative in size. Always has collectibles well displayed; strong on history, English Literature subjects, fiction but carries something of everything including music books. Combine with visits to Help the Aged bookshop and the Record Collector at other end of Broomhill high street then have coffee at Remo's.  S+S 06.04.13

A good quality stock leaning towards the academic and including the humanities, literature and philosophy.

The epitome of a good secondhand shop with tottering piles of newly purchased stock at every turn and many "deeply stocked" subject areas such as history, art books, cinema, psychology and literature. The manager plays good music, and Sheffield's best fish'n'chip shop, Two Steps, is close by.  S+S 18.07.11
While not a large shop, it's well worth the trip out to Sharrow Vale Road, where parking is quite convenient. The stock is of very good quality and there are some unusual titles.  Nicholas Pendower 01.11.12
Brilliant shop for the fiction reader. Stock is extensive, fairly priced and contains recent and interesting titles. The SF is particularly good.  Jake Kirkwood 22.03.13
Best bookshop in Sheffield!  Chants 15.06.13
By far the best little book shop in Sheffield. Crammed full of books and charm.  Chanty 02.01.14
Can't agree with any of the comments. Found this a dull outfit. (It's within walking distance of 2 other s/h bookshops.) Perhaps the dirty floor put me off; that and the tall, wobbly stacks of books. Shallow Vale Road does have some other interesting shops - one selling great railway posters caught the eye.  Chris K 01.04.14
