Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has lost his Tour De France titles and his key to the city of Adelaide.

Now it seems his book, which tells the story of his battle with cancer and his rise to fame, has lost its credibility with readers.

The Manly Library will move all Lance Armstrong's books, including his autobiography 'It's Not About the Bike' from its non-fiction to fiction section, in a move that's made world headlines.

Now Broken Hill's Browzer's bookshop is tossing up whether to follow suit.

"We haven't sold many copies of his books in the last 12 months, but that could be because the people interested in reading it have already read it," manager Paul Lewis said.

"I must say he did have his heart in the charities," Mr Lewis said.

The 41-year-old Armstrong last week tearfully admitted to talk show host Oprah Winfrey that he used doping throughout his career.

It's estimated he lost $75 million in sponsorship the day after he confessed.
