Latest News - 13th April 2021


We are all SO excited to be able to welcome you back into the shop to browse. We're so grateful for all the 'click and collect' support we've received over the last few months (you've been amazing), but we've really missed being able to chat books with you face to face. We know that many of you are as excited as we are to come back in, so please remember that our shop is big on books but small on space we can only allow three families or five individuals in to browse at any one time. Please bear with us we have to ask you to wait for a minute or two. 


Keeping you and our team as safe as possible remains paramount. Please remember to sanitise your hands when you come into the shop, to wear a mask if you can and to maintain social distancing. Please do not come to the shop if you or someone in your bubble has Coronavirus symptoms, or you or someone in your bubble has received a positive test result and you have been asked to isolate. Stay home, get well and if you need books, call us and we'll get them to you!

If you're not comfortable about visiting us at the moment that's also fine! There are still lots of ways that we can get books to you:


Contact us to place your order or ask for suggestions - we love hearing from you. 

We'll contact you when your book(s) is ready for collection from the shop.

You can pay prior to collection by bank transfer, by debit or credit card over the phone, or pay by card when you collect (no cash please). 


If you would prefer not to visit the shop to collect your purchases, we offer free delivery to OX10 postcodes, Goring, Streatley and Upper and Lower Basildon. We are also very happy to post books for you (postage charges will apply). A gift wrapping service is also available.


Browse the shelves from the comfort of your home! We can set up a virtual shopping appointment for you so that you can browse the shelves and ask us for ideas for you or the book-lovers in your life. Call or email us for details.
