A tiny place, but a quality selection - dig around and you'll probably find something. Prices are comparable to Flow in Central. This small, non-profit shop is a labour of love for the book-loving owner who would be happy to just be able to cover her costs. I fear this one may not survive long (it opened this year), unless it gets more traffic.  Read more »

Oxfam Shop, Central

There's an Oxfam charity store in the basement of Jardine's House in Central. I called in there today, and came away with three second-hand paperbacks, priced in the range $25-40 each.

In the high streets of small towns in the UK it seems like every other shop is a charity shop. There aren't many here though.

The Travellers' Home

The address is:
2/F, 55 Hankow Road


2/F, 40 Lyndhurst Terrace

Jam-packed with books, and next to the Mid-levels escalator, so it's easy to get to.

Coffee. Book

[Thanks to T for supplying the name of this place that I'd forgotten]

They are the only shop on this stretch of road, so they are easy to see. As well as selling books they also run a coffee shop and serve light meals too.

I had lunch there once - I didn't get ill but it was very unexciting (I think they cater to pupils from the nearby schools). So I'd suggest you to stick to the books.
