Pegasus Books describes itself as “a small independent bookseller”, but don’t let that fool you. Comprised of an almost labyrinth-like series of rooms stacked floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall with everything from New Age astrology to Footrot Flats comics, Pegasus truly is a bibliophile’s delight.

The knowledgeable staff are more than happy to assist with buying, selling, and other enquiries, while the sheer number of titles on site provides ample insulation from the outside world.

Pegasus Books is a likely source for books that are otherwise difficult to find, and a brilliant space to while away a rainy day.
