I liked how the Chess Books layed out in front of the chess Club and the painted Walls inside and the Shelfs of Books and the Tables and the Chess Boards layed out for people to use them. i liked the chess games they were fun and friendly. you could played competivily if you wanted to. i also liked that alan would give me helpful feedback when i asked him what should i have done instead. the place has a small amount of chess books and a lot of fictional and non fictional books. bring a notebook with a rubber and pencil to record your chess games for free. i don't like that if you don't bring a notebook you will have to buy £15 for a sheet to record your games. its only a short visit if you visit it for a short amount of time. it not all day event. its an evening event.

This Book Shop is fairly new to the town and I think the proprietors have taken an optimistic view that the business can be profitable when so many in other towns are closing down.Speaking for myself I seldom buy books these days as I prefer to read Kindle books on my IPad .This has the advantage of being cheaper and convenience. However there are people not many perhaps who prefer books to hold in their hands which is just as well for a bookshop.The owners are nice people and I wish them every success.
