Bookshop Closed

Michael's Bookshop is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic

We have taken this precautionary measure to protect ourselves and our customers, we aim to keep people updated on Thanetonline Blog

We don’t aim to be doing much on either the book buying or the bookselling front until the situation over the virus is much clearer, so at the moment if you have books that you want to sell to us you will need to wait for a bit.  

Until the situation becomes clearer, we have also stopped posting books to people.
