Storms don’t last forever – a message from Helen


It’s been hard for us all to adapt to this new normal. We miss our customers, many of whom have become friends, very much. Above anything, we hope you keep safe and well at what is a testing time for everyone.

Our shop is temporarily closed to the public, a decision that was taken a few days prior to the Prime Minister’s announcement last Monday. We are keeping well and while we are able, we wish to continue to make people smile with books. We have established a #PayItForward scheme, developed some free resources, and are also delighted to announce that thanks to your support, we were able to make a sizeable donation of books to Bassetlaw Foodbank.

We are available by phone (01777 948580) and email ( for book recommendations and even a general chat if you’re feeling a bit lonely. Our book subscriptions make wonderful gifts and are still available for purchase; however please note that due to the ongoing situation, we will not begin dispatch of any new subscriptions until May. Our gift vouchers are available for purchase and we will ensure a long expiry date so that recipients have plenty of time to redeem them.

Our supplier is currently offering a home delivery service, so for the time being, we are still able to safely fulfil orders on new books. We can accept orders on books for both children and grown-ups and while schools are closed, we are able to offer a 20% discount off any books on a school reading list. Please be honest about this.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We look forward to a grand re-opening in the future!
