This online catalogue gives you an idea of the kind of books you'll find on the shelves of our shop.

It is organised into categories (as listed on the left), and each category contains related lists of books - many booklists are linked to more than one category, so as you browse you will find links to related books & booklists

You will find that some booklists have lots of titles, and some have only a few. We are adding new books to the website all the time, but it is a very time-consuming process, so please bear with us!

It can't tell you if we have a particular book in stock or not right now, but if you call or email us we can check that for you..

If we don't have the book you want in stock we 'll order it:-

  • Many popular titles are available within 2-3 days
  • ... and most others take 7-10 days (subject to availability)

We can order any book that's in print in the UK - many more books than are on this website! So if you're looking for a particular book, go straight to our order website, which features the whole books-in-print database: search for books at:

World War I - 2014 marks the centenary of the First World War.
The first world war centenary is year to honour the dead, not glorify the war, says War Horse author Michael Morpurgo:
"There should be no flag waving, unless it be the lowering of the flags of all the nations who lost their sons, unless it be to celebrate the peace we now share together, unless it be to reaffirm again our determination to guard our freedom, but as far as humanly possible to do it in peace. And when we sing the anthems, let them be anthems of peace and reconciliation.
...Come each November over the next four years, let the red poppy and the white poppy be worn together to honour those who died, to keep our faith with them, to make of this world a place where freedom and peace can reign together."
(Michael Morpurgo)
You can read more about the alternative World War 1 commemorations at - and read an open letter, signed by writers, actors, musicians, teachers and campaigners - that calls for the anniversary to be used to promote peace and international co-operation.
