Other titles can normally be supplied within 3-5 working days. We are able to source all titles currently in print in the UK. We can also source titles published in the United States, and out-of-print titles.

Competitive Discounts
We offer highly competitive discounts – our prices are often better than can be found with on-line suppliers, and we make no charge for delivery. We are happy to quote for your specific needs.

Author Visits
We have excellent contacts with leading publishers and their authors. For regular customers we can help arrange a variety of author events for all ages. Authors often come to us as part of a book tour and at these times no fee is payable for their visit.  We supply books for author visits on a sale-or-return basis; we deliver free and collect any returns afterwards.

What our customers say

They know about books and can discuss them, and when you order them they arrive quicker than you can say Amazon.

Everyone there is enthusiastic and friendly. They really know about books, and they display them so enticingly that it is hard to walk past! They are expert at looking up obscure publications, and efficient at getting most things in the very next day. Couldn’t be better.
