  2. We are on holliday from the Netherlands and visit Carlisle for a day. Always on the search for some (cheap) historical books about the Maya's. Totally surpised to find at Bookcase a shelf full of books relating the Maya people. Picked three out and I am very happy with them.
    Never visit a store this big with old books.
    Thanks a lot

  3. I've only been to Carlisle 3 times but each visit would not be complete without a few hours spent in the wonderful place. Wonderful staff and couldn't leave without making a few purchases.

  4. A biblio- and audiophiles labyrinth with pleasures and treasures in every corner.

  5. Best second-hand bookshop I've ever encountered. Unbeatable selection of books, friendly staff and just exploring the different rooms is an adventure in itself!

    I'd been searching for a very obscure short story for years and had almost given up hope of ever finding it again, until a rummage in Bookcase's science-fiction section turned up the only anthology it has even been published in, and at a bargain price too!

    Thanks to Steve and the staff, looking forward to my next visit to the shop.

    Best wishes and Merry Christmas!

  7. Super, thanks Ninian! We also just got a huge selection of Jazz in, interspersed with choral, film scores and opera. Something for everyone!

  8. Every time I visit I find something I've not seen before and want: two weeks ago I got a very unusual CD of the music of Offenbach, 'Ballade Symphonique'. A gem of a shop!

  10. I have spent many a happy hour in here. Just a great shop. we need more like it as opposed to the bland fare on offer in Waterstones etc. I like the political stuff esp the section on Marxism way up in the top floor

  11. I see we've had a few spammy comments about a shoe site - please note we would never endorse Christian Loubutin Shoes or any of their market style subsidiaries....

  12. Felt like I'd died and gone to heaven when I walked in!! Loved being surrounded by so many books, spent about an hour just wandering and browsing. Definately paying another visit next time I'm in Carlisle :)

  14. Bookcase is a great shop with helpful and knowledgeable staff. Whenever I'm in the area, I always pop in for a quick look, which always turns into at least an hour of fascinated browsing. Excellent selection of books, I have never failed to find something of interest.

    The new shelves being built on the first floor look great too!

    Thanks, and best wishes
    Dave
