Children's loyalty card scheme

We love helping young people to foster a love of books and reading!

Ask in the shop for one of our fun new loyalty cards to take home with you.

Collect a stamp for each £5 your child spends on books and get £5 off any book when you have collected 10 stamps.

Personal recommendation

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 enjoy a chat about interesting books.

Book clubs

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!

Gift ideas and "personal shopping"

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.

School orders 

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.
