BOOKS THAT GIVE BACK

We care about our local community, and believe that making the world a better place begins with small acts of kindness. We believe in shopping local, nurturing a love of reading, and supporting regional development.

 

We want our shop to be a welcoming environment for all, and share with you our passion for books. We will have regular bookshop events and can't wait to open our shop to everyone and celebrate amazing reads together!

BOOKS THAT DON'T COST THE EARTH

We know that the only thing better than delving into a new page turner is delving into a new page turner while supporting positive change.

 

That's why we plant a tree for every 50 books bought from our bookshop, website or via our Bookshop.org shop. One tree on average produces more than 200 paperback books, and most books are made from sustainably managed forests, so we more than replace the trees that pass through our shop as books.

 

Our business is not only carbon neutral, it's tree positive.

BOOKS YOU WILL LOVE

We love books, and we love helping others find their next perfect read. Whether you're looking for a gripping crime novel, an escape into stunning fantasy or the latest culinary how-to, we're on hand to help you find your book match. We stock a wide range of books for all ages, and are always happy to order in if we don't have what you're looking for on the shelves. We're adding to our book reviews and curated lists all the time, so check back on our website for book inspiration, or join our mailing list to keep up to date with new releases, events, and our favourite books we think you'll love.
