Civilised Saturday

Following the frenzy of Black Friday, join us for Civilised Saturday.

On Saturday 28th November our doors will be open and we’ll be ready to share our ideas and inspiration for Christmas presents – books and gifts guaranteed to make your loved ones smile and make your present a winner.

As well as our carefully chosen range of the best titles available this Christmas, we operate an easy ordering service with next working day delivery on the majority of titles. Don’t forget our selection of signed copies which make the perfect gift – and there are some beautiful cards and stationery in stock too.

Ladybird: How it Works

Perfect stocking fillers, the latest books to hit the bestseller lists are the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups. Ladybird Books marked their centenary by releasing the new series which includes How It Works: The Husband, How It Works: The Wife, The Ladybird Book of The Hangover, and The Ladybird Book of The Mid-Life Crisis. The full range is available from both shops. Read more

James Patterson Independent Bookshop Grant

Bestselling author and bookshop devotee, James Patterson has donated a total of £500,000 to independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland, and we are delighted to have received one of these grants in the second round of donations. Look out for new hanging signs and A-frames featuring our ‘reading boy’ logo at both our shops.

James Patterson says: “I have been completely overwhelmed by just how many people have applied for the grants second time round, and yet again have been impressed and enthused by the calibre of the applications. It’s been very exciting to see the ideas from the first round in action. I have again worked to identify independent bookshops for whom this money may make a difference and I’m excited to follow their progress. I can’t wait to see what the UK and Ireland’s incredible and pioneering bookshops propose for next year.”

Jackie Morris

Some authors go the extra mile to support booksellers, and artist and author Jackie Morris is perhaps one of the most dedicated.
