We are now open again on Sundays, from 1 to 4.30. This year is a great one for novels - new books by Sally Rooney, Jonathan Franzen, Esther Freud, Amor Towles, Sebastian Faulks, Anthony Doerr, Leila Slimani, Colm Toibin and Rose Tremain amongst others. Some excellent new children's books, in particular one by the author of Wonder who has written something else entirely called Pony. The shop is filling up again - do come and browse.
Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop
Wednesday, 6 October 2021
Saturday 9th October is Bookshop Day and independent bookshops throughout the country will be putting on different events. We are too small in this covid era for events to be held in the shop but we are offering 2 for 1 on all children's paperbacks that day.
The following Sunday, 10th October, we will be open again as in pre covid times from 1-4.30. We look forward to welcoming you back to the bookshop for a browse of the many new titles we have in stock.

We are now open 10 am to 5 pm Monday to Saturday, and you are very welcome to come in and browse. We are not, for the moment, opening on Sundays. It is great to be able to welcome customers back into the shop. There are some excellent books that have appeared in the past year, so do take your time and have a look through them.
We are still limited to two customers at a time, and there is a hand sanitising table at the door. Please wear a face covering...

The bookshop is open for collections only until 12th April, 2-4 Wednesday to Saturday. You can order by phone or email and pay with a card or online. We are also happy to deliver if you would rather not leave your house.

We look forward to welcoming you back into the bookshop on Monday 12th April when you will be able to browse again!

The bookshop will shut for a short holiday at 4pm on Christmas Eve. We had hoped to reopen on 29th December but this is no longer possible, due to covid Tier 4 restrictions. Instead, we are taking a break till the week of January 4th and will then be back in the shop every week on Wednesday to Saturday, from 2 till 4, when we will offer an ordering/collection/delivery service. Please ring and leave a message if you have an order or would like to arrange collection or delivery - 01993 812760 - or email us at email@example.com.
If you live further away but would like to support The Woodstock Bookshop rather than an online one that does not pay taxes and undercuts independent booksellers, you can help us by ordering through the Bookshop.org, link below:
Many thanks for your support during this time - and best wishes for 2021.
Saturday, 5 September 2020
We are now back in the bookshop, from 10.30-4.30 every day except Sunday. It is very good to be here again and we are immensely grateful to the many customers who have supported the bookshop during the past five months by ordering books from us. It has made a huge difference to our finances and our well-being.
We look forward to seeing you again and to introducing you to some of the many excellent new books being published this autumn. James Rebanks has a new book out, English Pastoral - and there is a novel from Marilynne Robinson, always cause for celebration. Natasha Farrant has just published a great story for children aged 8-12, Voyage of the Sparrowhawk, there is a new Julia Donaldson... Too many new books to list separately but plenty to browse through - we have hand sanitiser at the door and hope you will come and see what books have appeared since March.
