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:
