Oxfam Emporium on Oldham Street is good.

Empire Exchange near Piccadilly has plenty of second-hand books and other old tat.

There's a great second-hand book on Shudehill around the back of the Arndale called Paramount Books. They have a lot of rare books there and the owner has a prosthetic hand. It's only open three days a week though, I think. I know it's open on Fridays.

There's usually a second-hand bookstall floating round MMU students union area. Sometimes it's near the Piccadilly Station approach instead - usually in summer when the students have gone home.

Obviously you also have Waterstones, Blackwell's etc. and the City Library.

Hope this helps.

I just remembered that actually he has two prosthetic hands, or at least I seem to remember him struggling to scoop up my change in such a way that suggested that they were both prosthetic. They are beigey plasticy things

If you live in South Manchester there's a great little place in Didsbury. Address is 47 Barlow Moor Road, there's a cafe at the front which you walk through to get to the bookshop. Pic related

I never noticed he has a prosthetic hand. Nice guy, he always gives me a piece of fruit when I buy something.

Forgot to mention - the cafe at the front is called The Art Of Tea, the bookshop itself is called Didsbury Village Bookshop.

If you're heading that way, Chorlton has a lot of Chairty shops including an Oxfam Books where I get old issues of National Geographic from. You can also get old NG from Paramount Books but they're a bit more expensive.

Yes he's a nice fellow, grey curly hair yes? He definitely has plastic hands, my old flatmate first noticed it and then I couldn't help but see it when he awkwardly tried to scoop up some coins for me one time.

I also saw him reading a book to his little daughter(?) on the sofa by the window once, she turned the pages for him. It was quite sweet.

I live out in Bramhall. Whilst the city centre is a short train-ride away, and I can get to Cheadle / Didsbury fairly easily by bus, Chorlton is a pain in the ass for me to get to.

Talking of Bramhall, our Oxfam occasionally has goldmines. Got a Folio Society 2-book hardcover of The Greek Myths for £8, hardcover faux-leather War and Peace 3-book set for £6. Both look like they've never been read.

I saw a kid in Paramount before but thought it was a fairly androgynous boy with long hair, aged 11ish? I swear it was a schoolday but he was quietly flitting around - sitting in the window and reading, quietly scampering off to get a drink, wandering over to have quiet chats with his dad, going and reading in a different chair. Seemed like a pretty cool environment to grow up in.

I've spent some time in Bramhall before, though never had time to check the shops. Quite posh isn't it? I see a house on one of the residential roads with these great big fake castle towers at the end of the driveway.

I knew girl from there once upon a time, Jess, she had huge tits. Lovely girl. Not sure what she's up to these days.

Yeah living with my parents to save money. Half of it is really posh, half of it is more normal (but still almost exclusively middle-class)

Looking to move into Withington to be a bit closer to town and live in a younger, more lively environment

I used to live in Withington, on the high street opposite the library. It's great, not as full-on studenty as Fallowfield but still youthful. Indigo and Fuel are just as good as any bar in the Northern Quarter if you like alternative watering holes.
