Bookshops

Lexicon Bookshop

Strand Street, Douglas IM1 2RL – 01624 673004

This is the kind of bookshop that if you like books and a good read you dream of - the old fashioned values where the owners actually care that you enjoy what you buy. They make recommendations and get excited that you havent read something and then go into the store room to find it for you. If they were based in London or New York they would have an international following. Always my first stop when visiting Douglas #amazing

Waterstones

Unit 2, 21-25 Strand Street, Douglas IM1 2EF – 01624 679051

Excellent book store with a good cafe and plenty of reading room. Comfortable and not rushed. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Only complaint is the lack of books by new authors on show. Only available to order and yet tables and tables of celebrity books.

Excellent library! Super comfy place :-)

Churches Bookshop

Howard Street Douglas, Douglas IM1 2EQ, Isle of Man – 01624 621593

Unique on the island for Christian literature. But a bit small.
