Here we are at the end of another year of happy bookselling with the shelves groaning under the weight of all the gorgeous books that have recently arrived. So much choice but lots of fun in the choosing. In the last few months, we have had Belinda managing our Facebook page and what an amazing difference she is making. She has helped us showcase books that we are recommending in a creative and compelling way. We are very grateful to have her as a part of our team.
If you have never checked out our Facebook page, now might be the time to try. There is a special promotion to win a lovely pile of Summer reading for all the family and to gift a matching selection to a friend. The promotion ends on December 8th when the lucky winners will be announced.
You can access the Facebook page easily via the website here.
Patricia Morrison: We were shocked and saddened at the sudden death of Patricia, a previous owner of the shop, friend and great supporter for many years. In the last few years, Patricia had been very involved in libraries at the prisons and made a huge difference there. We will miss her.
