News - Week ending 8 February 2019

I have said too often this winter “life gets in the way” as it has once done again, as I take on the care of my elderly mother, which includes selling her home on the west coast and dispersing the contents among her family.

So, again we will be open with reduced hours –

We will be closed Sunday and Monday February 10th and 11th.

We will be open Tuesday 12th of February - Friday 15th February

from 11 am – 4 pm.

Saturdays we will be open 9:30 am – 5 pm.

My sincere apologies if you find us closed when you expected us to be open.


New & Noteworthy Books received this past week include

The Black Ascot by Charles Todd is new in hardcover, the 21st in this series and one I cannot wait to escape into. If you have not read this author try one of the earlier ones and I bet you’ll be hooked, as I am.


Death of an Honest Man by MC Beaton is now in paperback, another in the Hamish Macbeth Mystery series – will deliver just what you will expect – an complete escape with a few laughs.

The following were all reviewed when I read them in hardcover, and they are all now in paperback so have a look at the reviews on our website.


I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon is a work of historical fiction, and a good read -  as is Peter May’s I’ll Keep You Safe.


A Long Way From Home by Peter Carey and Sofie & Cecilia by Katherine Ashenburg are both exceptional - books I guarantee you’ll love.
