Reasons to be cheerful...

In the next few uncertain weeks/months there is no reason to miss out on those awesome new titles (or ones on your wish list) because you can't get out of the house.

What better way to entertain the children than by allowing them to get lost in some great books.

Continue to support your local independent shops so they will still be there later on.

How about letting us choose some brand new authors for you - let us know a genre or two and we will send something out to surprise you.

Birthdays and Mother's Day and other celebrations will still happen, so why not get in touch and we can wrap and send just for you.


Get in touch on 01642 909970, let us know the title and we will deliver it for free (with in the Stockton/Yarm area, not daily, but soon and safe). If you live further afield, panic not, we can still deliver but there will be a small charge for postage.
