Gridley's Book Shop: Book Shop
This shop has gone through a few changes since I was a young. It would have got a 4 star for curiosity then, but only because it took some looking through the old oak book-shelves to get what you wanted. Today finding books is far easier, though I do have a twinge of remorse for missing the chase for that illusive book! The staff a very helpful, and they will try to get any book by hook or by crook.
