57 ( +1 | -1 ) bookstoresso - are there any bookstores in the uk that hold a decent selection of chess books? in my experience the usual places are hopeless.....even waterstones, a very large outfit are pitiful. yes i know that amazon (or gk online) is the best way to go - but i'm old fashioned you know? i like to browse and to look through a few before deciding - not just reading other people's reviews (although brobishkin, i think i can safely take your word as a good reference considering your rating..) so - any ideas?

If you are in london, then the london chess center is a well known chess store, with thousands of books, new and old, and they also sell other chess goods. their website www.chess.co.uk, should give you more info on how to get to them. Hope this helps :-)

P.S. ratings dont matter much on-line... My rating is much lower here than my real world USCF rating (a slight emotional let down), but these computer programs keep on getting better and harder to defeat... So give me time... Thanks for the compliment...
