There's no surprise when writing about a bookshop I hear you say...even if London has some nice ones. So what's the point in me telling you about this, and not some new app for yet another digital device? Well it's quite simple really, how many gambling-only bookshops do you know?
That's right - High Stakes bookshop specializes in gambling books of all kinds, including tactics, techniques and tips on a numerous variety of gaming subjects. There are books on the typical casino games such as poker, blackjack and roulette, and then the more British pastimes of Greyhounds and Horse Racing. To get to grips with what they have to offer, check out their virtual bookshop, where their whole range can be browsed, and even bought online.
Their are some good sections to look out for too, such as the downloadable ebooks, for those who can't wait for snailmail to bring their new hardback to the door. Also it is worth checking out the recommended reading section, who better to get advice from than specialists in the field?
So whether you are an armchair football pundit, spread-better, or full on poker-faced blackjack hustler, there is no doubt there's a book for you.
