Natural History and science books on the shelf

This is a fairly popular area in the bookshop particularly during spring and early summer for natural history books.

On the whole science related books tend to be relatively expensive to buy new so considerable savings can be made by buying them secondhand.

As a general bookseller I don’t stock textbooks mostly they do not lend themselves to secondhand, as they are usually out of date or no longer used on a local course by the time people come to sell them to me.

However if you get a sudden urge for a book about the poisonous snakes of Australia or land snails I may be able to help.

    Sorry to change subject but this is very important!

    Do you think that Steve Ladyman MP should resign from his position as a local president of the Royal British Legion (page 35 Kent On Sunday- view online) after voting against the rights of the Gurkhas ?

    Its a bit like a vicar voting against the choir!


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
