Internet Technical Bookshop

Books and Reources for the Sciences and the Arts


You may well ask what the word "scribend" means. Well ... it is a "piece of writing" .. not quite scribbling and not quite doodling ... but more along the lines of exploring associations of ideas coupled with associations formed by serendipitous googling and sometimes ideas and thoughts that come to me during Quaker Meeting for Worship.

Most of the books and items mentioned in these "scribends" can be found in the Internet Technical Bookshop. However because it is impossible for small specialist bookshops to compete with the likes of Amazon we are providing Amazon Associate links so that you can obtain them over the internet, and we can earn a little bit of money. Of course, you will be most welcome to come to Carshalton and visit us and purchase these books and browse around in the "traditional bookshop way". If the weather is nice we can even provide tables and chairs to relax with a quiet game of chess, or scrabble or backgammon.

If you come and visit the shop on Saturday you may bump into a discussion group including the odd 5th DAN or higher in various martial arts disciplines, eccentric, and not so eccentric scientific types, and regular folk also. Usually these sessions are accompanied by a copious supply of tea, coffee and biscuits and range over a very wide set of interests.

As already mentioned, the books reviewed here will be in stock at our bookshop. Do please come and browse if you have a free Saturday morning or afternoon. You may be able to obtain these books e.g. via Amazon (its almost impossible to compete with them on price) if you are in a hurry. If you want to support this local community oriented shop then just send us an email (andrew dot eliasz at gmail dot com) and we will reply with cost of book and postage.
