Last Books, located at the end of King Street close to St Peters station, is a book lover’s paradise. To call their catalogue extensive is to do the store a colossal disservice, carrying everything from Hobb to Hugo to Hemingway. Its small space houses large shelves crammed tight with books of all kinds, and none are discriminated against. Comics adorn shelves in front of manuscripts of new and classic plays, and large cookbooks sit close to dusty legal textbooks. There’s a book here for everyone and should be a must-visit for any intrepid readers enjoying a jaunt through Newtown.
