Covid-19: Re-emerging into a Different World

We are delighted to see bookshops across the country opening their doors to the reading public once more. We will queue, we will hand sanitise, we will wear masks… and we will buy books!

However the re-opening of our world is not happening as quickly as we had hoped. We continue to need you support. Our sincere thanks go out to readers and writers everywhere for your support so far during these difficult months. We know that Covid 19 is still with us so do continue to stay safe and stay well as we move forward with the Unlocking of Lockdown and head back out into the world.

The next few months will be far from easy for any of us as we try to make up for the lost months. But business to business, reader to reader, we will support each other. Buy here online, buy safely in bookshops, buy books!
