We LOVE books and everything that a good book can inspire.

From seeing a young child captivated by a beautifully illustrated picture book to losing ourselves in an author’s imaginary world.

From being challenged in our thinking by new ideas to seeing the world afresh.

From curling up with a good book to having a great conversation about a book.

From laughing out loud or being moved to tears by a book.

Come and browse our thoughtfully-curated stock of books. Our friendly team are here to help with recommendations. And if there's any book you're after that's not on the shelves we can order it in for collection within 3 days. Email us:

“This is great. I don't have to traipse into town or inflate the profits of a multinational company to get hold of a particular book.

I can use a friendly and efficient small shop that gets hold of books quickly and benefits the local community. I heartily recommend it.”
