Local Bookshops

Waterstones

Emerson Chambers, Blackett St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7JF, UK – 0191 261 7757

I love Waterstones, and it is always nice to browse in - not withstanding the fact that Amazon, etc, are always cheaper - I think bookshops need to be supported. The staff in this store are always really helpful and chatty. However, whenever I queue up to pay it is a nightmare to find anyone on the tills - except downstairs where the queue is nearly always long (i.e., 5 minutes or greater). There have been plenty of times I have gone to pay and been unable to find a member of staff. I am not sure why this is? The cafe is also very expensive and the quality not great. With prices actually higher than the high street coffee shops you would expect the coffee and sandwiches to be of fantastic quality. This is not the case. The staff were not using temperature gauges to make the coffee and as a result the coffee was pretty awful. For the price this is not what you would expect.

Hi I went in for a specific book yesterday and the staff were amazing in the Newcastle branch! Special thanks to Jonny Woolett who went out of his way to find the book for me, when I couldn't find it on the shop floor. I can't mention the book on here at the moment ad it is a suprise Christmas present! Jonny is a credit to the store and was so patient given the large queues and how busy the store was! Well done!

Blackwell's

Very friendly staff and a good selection of textbooks as well as fiction and non fiction. They also do second hand and buy your old books; very handy for those textbooks you don't use anymore.

Ok did not find what I wanted but otherwise great place to browse
