Thank you

 Hope you don't think us party poopers but we thank you from the bottom of our bookseller hearts for continuing to wear a facemask while in the bookshop.

It helps us to stay safe and stay open.

Happy New Year!

 Happy new year to you all! 

Jolly glad to see the back of 2020, however, we start 2021 under tier 4 so sadly we will remain closed for January. 

I will do my best to provide a request and collect service for those in need under tier 4 restrictions but it will be a slower process than our usual fast order service. 

Please do get in touch with us preferably via email or use

If you have an order ready to collect or due in January I will be in touch to arrange a solution. 

Thank you for your patience with us at this strange time. 

Stay safe and keep reading!
