We will also post books anywhere in the UK and will only charge the actual cost of postage.
The books have arrived safely to Bristol and are wonderful. Just what I had in mind for my boys and arrived so quickly. Thank you. Regards, Rebecca"
Let me start off by saying that we would much prefer to meet you in person, talk books with you and recommend our favourites to you face to face (well through a screen at the moment but you know what I mean). That is what we set the shop up for, being part of the community of Lindley.
However, if you cannot get to the bookshop or just simply prefer to order your books online, there is now an alternative to Amazon which supports your local bricks and mortar bookshop. Click on the link below to check out Bookshop.org or type a book into the search box and you will be taken directly to our page on Bookshop.org. For every purchase you make through our shop front on this site we receive a commission which will help keep us open on the high street. We have provided some recommendations for you to consider so please browse our lists but you can buy any book and as long as it is through us we get the commission.

Did you know we sell a small range of adult books? I am always on the look out for interesting titles that do not have a high profile. In addition we can order almost any title and they are often here within a week. Shop local and conveniently.
Miss Benson's Beetle by Rachel Joyce
I still get a warm feeling when I think of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry which was Rachel's debut novel. This is even better. An adventure story for women, its about being bold, brave and hopeful, about being who you are and respecting others, its about being open to other people, especially those who aren't like you, and finding the unexpected. Absolutely brilliant.
