Our knowledgeable staff are all book lovers too. We love the challenge of working with you to find just the right book, based on whatever sense or guidance you can offer!

Of course, there's no better way to pass time than with a good browse round the shelves and we always welcome a chat about interesting books.

Personal recommendation

Let us make a suggestion for your next book club meeting. We'd love to discuss how your book group works, what you all enjoy discussing and take any tips we can pass on to others.

Order for your whole group through us and ask about our Book Club discount!

Book clubs

Struggling to think of the right book for your grandchildren, godson, daughter-in-law, father-in-law or wife?! Give us some idea of what their interests might be and ask us to put together a selection which we can talk you through in the shop to help you make the right choice.

Gift ideas and "personal shopping"

Talk to us about ordering your school's set texts, library renewals, prizes, reading groups, author readings, World Book Day and any other campaigns.

We love to support reading in the local community.

School orders 

Although we do not sell second hand books in the shop, we are often able to help you get hold of a hard to find second-hand book through our connections with other bookshops and second-hand book-sellers all over the world. Set us a challenge!
