Continuing In Many Bookshops with Mr. Charmley, we come to The Bible Depot, Cardiff Market. The Central market in Cardiff is a large covered structure, and in addition to the stalls on the ground floor, there is a broad gallery around all four sides on the building, containing additional stalls; among these gallery stalls is the Bible Depot. Despite its name, this is in fact a Christian bookshop that stocks far more than just Bibles, although they stock Bibles. The stock is small, as should be expected in a small shop. Nevertheless, it has been carefully selected for usefulness, containing far more of substance than the average Wesley Owen shop - not that that's difficult! The Bible Depot is a little gem, packed with good books of all types. There is a small second hand stock, but the emphasis is on new books.
I liked the Bible Depot, and it was not like the Churches Together Bookshop, where I liked the staff more than the stock - I like the stock here as well!
