Fancy a good read?  Head to Armchair Books which is a second hand and antiquarian book shop which is a little gem in the already delightful area of Grassmarket.armchair ebooks grassmarket edinburgh reading non fiction As soon as you walk in you’re lovingly punched in the face with that aroma of books–not the “new” ebooks smell, but that old, beloved smell that comes from books that have been owned and loved before. Then you take in the walls stacked floor to ceiling, with hand-written labeling to mark the different genres (and a cautionary handwritten warning for the use of the step-ladder), and the enchantment begins!

Clearly marked sections, as much alphabetization as possible, and hardly any books found on the floors to be stumbled over. The place is surprisingly big and charmingly lit with wee hanging lightbulbs. But the real finds for the hubs and I were the antique books.

Most importantly the staff are just the lovliest! Just nice and armchair ebooks grassmarket edinburgh reading non fictionfriendly and sometimes even offer a wee discount which is really nice. The good customer service is what makes you want to go back
