As Cambridge is famous for its student population, it has a wide variety of stores for the avid bibliophile. As a resident English student, I've trawled most of them in the search for a bargain and I have to say that Galloway and Porter is the best I've come across. Situated near Sainsbury's in Sidney Street, it supplies a huge range of slightly damaged or surplus stock at discount prices. All tastes and budgets are catered for, whether you're after blockbuster novels, cookery books or specialist academic titles. The shop has three different floors which include the following sections: history, science, travel, literature, art, cookery and of course popular titles. To give you an idea of what's available, i've managed to pick up books like Rushdie's Midnight's Children and a collection of Tom Stoppard's plays for £1, a beautiful illustrated version of Shakespeare's sonnets for £2 and a hardback copy of a Dennis Potter biography for £6 (normally £18). As you can see there are plently of bargains to be had and it really is heaven for those who love browsing. It's best to keep popping in regularly as the stock changes all the time. The only real downside is that there isn't much space as they obviously try to cram in as much as possible, so it can be difficult to get to what you want on a Saturday afternoon. Still, a real gem of a shop (much more worth a look than Oxfam books next door or the market which overcharge for very average second hand stock). Enjoy!
