    • Detecting New Agatha Christies
    • 13 November 2014 -
    • We have just purchased an extensive run of facsimile Agatha Christie hardback novels, published by the Collins Crime Club. These novels are as new with bright dust jackets harking back to the original editions.

      We also have some other interesting Christie material. For instance, Agatha Christie’s Devon, part of the Halsgrove Discover Series, is a lovely small format coffee table book full of photographs of the important landmarks of Christie’s life in Devon, as well as the much loved landscapes and settings of her books.

      Agatha Christie At Home, by Hilary Macaskill is likewise a handsome table book focusing on the famous detective writer’s house and environs.

      We also have a clean hardback edition of Christie’s Autobiography and other interesting items such as the Agatha Christie’s Who’s Who.

    • We're happy today that Coffee Cartel, those exemplary roasters and purveyors of coffee and tea, have opened up with a splash of red opposite us here in James St. Their shop looks swish and fun and their first day brought a live to air broadcast and an energetic vibe to our BB zone. It's great to have people nearby who are so thoroughly into what they do, so come down, take a sniff, and pop in to us for a browse and buy while you're at it.
