To find Books Locally
Glasgow: FM Books, a branch of The Faith Mission (which once had its HQ in Rothesay!) have a wide range of Christian books, music, and other items in their Glasgow store (formerly Wesley Owen). There is also an excellent cafe. It’s very convenient if you’re travelling via Glasgow Central Station.
Greenock: The New Dawn Bookshop at Struthers Memorial Church on Jamaica Street (not far from the Bus Station) has a good selection of Christian books. There is also an excellent cafe, undoubtedly the nicest place to have a cup of coffee and a sitdown in Greenock.
Finding Books Online
Most publishers now have comprehensive websites. It is not always possible to order books directly from publishers, and it is often quicker and more convenient to browse the publisher’s site, note the details of something you want, then see if your local bookshop or FM Books in Glasgow have it. If not, order from them, or online from Wesley Owen.
