Welcome to our used hardback books.

About Us

Old Bakery Books is a small, internet only, used bookstore  started by me Chris Hoddinott. It is based at my home "The Old Bakery".

The History of Old Bakery Books.

Before selling My first book I mostly used the internet to build up my own collection of hardback books. Old Bakery Books sold it's first book in 2003 and since then, has posted hundreds of books to dozens of countries.

As a book buyer I experienced some very good sellers as well as some not so good ones. I have tried to emulate the best ones by providing full, accurate, honest details of the books I sell, backed up by informative pictures.

Why You should buy from us.

All books are in my possession, ready to be sent out as speedily as I can. I buy good quality hardback books that will look like new on your bookshelf. Buying used books is not 'second best'. Our books are out of print and so if it is the hardback books that you like, then these are the best options. The majority of our used books are first editions which are sought after by collectors.

We pack all books in purpose made cardboard boxes.

Payment details are taken on a secure site and if you have an account with Paypal already then you will not have to give your payment details at all.

To all of you, from all of us at Old Bakery Books - Thank you and Happy eCommerce!
