Book Club

I often find it hard to chose what to read next, working in a bookshop helps in as much as there's plenty to go at but at the same time it can be overwhelming and I often end up with a stack of books I desperately want to read but just can't pick one! So I'm thinking about starting an online bookclub for inspiration. We pick a book each month and anyone who wants to read it can leave feedback on here. Any suggestions for the first book to read?

Summer Book Sale Rayrigg Rooms

We've booked the Rayrigg Rooms in Bowness for 5 days in July for a huge book sale. Dates and more info to follow. Watch this space.

New Stock

The Easter Weekend is nearly upon us and the shop is full to bursting with something to suit everyone from holiday reading to collectors items. On sunny days we're holding a sale outside with a variety of books priced £2.00 each or  4 for £6.00 so if the sun's out swing by for a look!

This morning the latest delivery of  Leeds Postcards arrived, satirical, cynical and hilarious is equal doses! My personal favourite is the David Cameron dot to dot which you can see on the blog. They could do with adding a few more members of parliament to it if you ask me!
