Apparently all the 'old' titles on the very high shelves, which can only be accessed by the sliding library ladders, were just sitting around in the Exclusive Books warehouse, waiting to be pulped, when someone came up with the ingenious idea of incorporating them into the shop's decor. Although not actively marketed as 'current' titles, they are still all for sale!
