General secondhand stock but particularly motorcycling and military history.

Good little bookshop with wide selection of reasonably priced books, and very helpful owner.  Steve Newman. 13.08.14
This shop has moved to 10 Michael Street. A small shop with a good selection of books. From memory I would think the new shop is smaller than the previous premises. The owner was as friendly and helpful as last time we visited 10 years ago.  Caroline Mathews 10.07.15
Very friendly owner; sort of place that locals come in for a blether rather than buying books. Having said that, there were some interesting titles and the prices extremely reasonable. One smallish room but worth a look if you're in Peel.  Graeme Rendall 09.08.18

17th Century to modern day fiction, thousands of books. Hidden gems, classics leather bound - a book lover's search heaven. Large purchase opportunities

I only found out about this place on my last day in the Island and time did not permit a visit. Apparently the books are scattered about in boxes unsorted but bargains can be had if you have the time to search through them.  Steve Newman. 13.08.14
2 large warehouses - the other had lots of old and new junk. Many thousands of books to search: lots of p/bs in boxes on the floor, with better stuff sorted on shelves and upper layers. Not too many of my interests but bought 2 h/bs - an uncommon S&W French film director's biography and an Andes cities one.  Chris K 19.08.14
Lots and lots of books. If there was any attempt at a logical ordering it was lost under the piles of books seemingly dumped at random. I gave up after about ten minutes, finding the whole place dispiriting. There might be some real gems in there, but it will take a lot of perseverance to find them.  Caroline Mathews 10.07.15
