Independent Bookstore Day 2021

Hey hey, here we go! All these goodies are now available and we'll have some freebies out in front of the store and so on as we celebrate — in our socially distanced fashion — Independent Bookstore Day 2021!

We will try and keep our online availability updated to match what we sell in store. Please accept our apologies if we sell out. Here's a map of more participating bookshops.

None of these items can be put on hold or bought beforehand. They'll be available on April 24th and when they are gone they are gone. Should be a busy, fun day!

I've added a few items from 2020 which can be ordered now. Gene Luen Yang's Dragon Hoops comes with a small signed poster.

Cook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella’s engaging and insightful prose. Whether talking about the evolution and meaning of the recipe in ‘What is a Recipe?’ – ‘a recipe, much like a novel, is a living collaboration between writer and reader. And in both cases, it is the reader who keeps it alive’ – or exploring the heinous notion of the guilty pleasure in ‘Death to the Guilty Pleasure’, Nigella is by turns characteristically informative, intelligent, thought-provoking and amusing.
