For those further afield, our online shop is still open and delivering books, subscriptions and solidarity to your door.📚
Oh no... 🤦♂️ Here goes @wordonthewater ❤️ Probably best I stay on the @SelfMadeHero editorial & production side of books. I can't stop looking through the beautiful drawings people posted in support! Hang tight, see you soon! ☺️📚 #DrawYourBookshop
It's us! 💚
📢 Artists! Book-lovers! 🧑🎨 We invite you to #DrawYourBookshop over the next couple of weeks 📚 Now more than ever is the time to support your favourite #bookshop with a sketch, drawing or masterpiece. They need your shout-out! #DrawYourBookshop and tell us why you love it 💕🙏
We've received so many wonderful drawings over the last few years and each one makes us do a little dance. 💚
Just your friendly reminder that if you want to pick up a new book for the weekend (cause there ain't a lot else to do...) books ordered by 1pm tomorrow will be at the barge on Friday for collection:

Some light relief from one of our stable of authors. 💚
The crisis nudged us into creating our online Bookbarge, where you can have any of 5 million titles delivered to you. If you'd rather support independent business shopping for books online, the income is helping us to pay our debts from the lockdown.
