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"
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.
Meet me at the Museum by Anne Youngson
Tina writes a letter to a Professor at a Danish museum, not expecting a reply. The reply she receives starts a correspondence that takes both people on a soul searching journey they never expected. The letters are profound and at times full of pathos. It will make you think about aspects of your life. I found myself trying to read more slowly because I didn't want it to end. One I will definitely reread (and there aren't many of them).
Children's Book of the Month - July 2020
The Diddle the Dummed by Kes Gray and Fred Blunt
Hurray, the Indie Book of the Month has returned and with a beauty too. This is a very funny story about one note in a tune that kept getting it wrong. It made me laugh out loud. I loved it so much I have read it on video. Check it out on Facebook and see if you agree with me.
