Latest News - December 2023
Signed copies - an excellent Christmas gift!
We regularly update the list of signed copies on the website, but as we get limited numbers, please do check with us before making a special journey especially as these are extremely popular as Christmas gifts!
We often get special indie bookshop editions too!

Libro.fm - An Audiobook Alternative
We are often asked for audio books, and whilst some are still available to purchase on CD, numbers have declined in recent years. Up until now, we have directed customers to the Libby and Borrowbox apps, which offer free audiobook downloads for library members, but there are sometimes queues for books, which can put some customers off.
So, now we've signed up to Libro.fm, the Bookshop.org of digital audio books! Click here to find out more :)
Christmas gift ideas
Christmas catalogues are available in the shop or the virtual versions can be found here.
The Booktime catalogue for November/December is available on our "Looking for Inspiration?" page.
If you are looking for children's books, have a read of the list of 15 recommendations we recently provided to Muddy Stilettos (Bucks and Oxon) on their website - just a tiny fraction of the children's books available in the shop.
We are, of course, happy to provide you with suggestions in the shop!
