We stock a range of over 6,500 titles, with our largest sections devoted to children’s books, fiction, cookery and biography. Rosamund de la Hey was formerly children’s marketing director at Bloomsbury Publishing so there is an understandable bias towards this area of publishing. She likes nothing better than being asked for advice on what to buy for children, or better still discussing this with the children themselves. Not to be outdone, Bill de la Hey is always on the lookout for new and exciting cookbooks, although it will take some doing to beat his favourite, the Women’s Institute SOUPS, the source for many of the in-house soups of the day.
If we don’t have the book you are looking for in-store, we would be happy to order it for you. If our wholesaler has it in stock they supply on a next day delivery service to collect in-store (which works out quicker than amazon). Just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to order a book.
