Welcome to my blog where I share my passion for secondhand books and the joy of finding hidden treasures in dusty old book shops.

In addition to selling secondhand books, I also write about my experiences exploring the world of used books, including tips on where to find them, how to care for them, and how to build your own collection. So join me on this adventure as we discover the wonders of secondhand books together.

I can also be found on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Twitter!
