Our second-hand bookshop has an extensive range of approximately 10,000 books for sale, both fiction and non-fiction.
The generous book donations which we regularly receive from our supporters mean that we have an estimated 9,000 books for sale, covering fiction, natural history, science, biography, history, politics, children’s books, photography, transport, sport, crafts, gardening, cookery, music…..the list could go on! In short, we probably have something for every taste.
We also offer some books (for example, those of a specialist nature) for sale on eBay.
We are always grateful to receive donations of books (although, due to space restriction, we would prefer that modern fiction is in paperback edition only). If you are able to donate books that are in a suitable condition for us to sell on, the money raised will help Thanet Countryside Trust to continue its work of conservation and education.
Facebook Bargain Books Album
On our Facebook page, Monkton Nature Reserve, we have set up an album specifically to highlight some of the books we have in our second-hand bookshop. The album is called Bargain Books. Some of these books will be one’s which we consider to be perhaps a little quirky, or beautifully illustrated, a bit specialised or, in some other way, caught our eye. We cannot, unfortunately, sell these books online, but we are happy to put books aside for anyone so they can come to the Reserve to purchase them. These books are just a very small selection of those we have at the Reserve, so feel free to come and browse at your leisure, as entrance to the bookshop is free.
