This site has come about as a result of requests from students of Galway Maths Grinds for recommendations for suitable text books for various courses of study and for students from various backgrounds.
I thought it appropriate to also recommend where they can be purchased and hope, that should you decide to purchase, that you consider doing so via the links on this site.
I then added recommendations for other things just because I felt like it. It is still a work in progress.
ABC School Books can supply you with all your primary and secondary schoolbook and stationery requirements, calculators etc. Purchase on line is simple and efficient. You can order online to have delivered to your door or you can order on line and pick up your order at one of the shops. when it is ready. If picking up at one of the shops you can have an SMS text message sent to tell you when it is ready.
Order third level and non-school books on-line at The Book Depository with free worldwide shipping. So the price you see is the full price you pay.
Not everything on the site is a traditional textbook. We need to allow for rest and recreation as well as "study", so I have included a few non-study type books below.
