Welcome to The Woodstock Bookshop

The shop opened in May 2008 and is on the main road in Woodstock, just next to the bus stop. We can supply most books to order by the next day and have several thousand books in stock: to order books ring or email the shop. We have a large selection of children's books and are happy to advise and recommend. We can also supply second-hand and out-of-print titles. We offer discounts for school orders and for book clubs and have a free local delivery service.

We were on the regional shortlist for Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009, 2013 and 2017, and listed in the recent Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

BOOK GROUPS
Two monthly book groups take place at the bookshop - a poetry group, initially formed to read collections submitted for the annual T S Eliot Prize and now following a slightly wider brief; and a book group focusing more on fiction. Both are open to everyone but occasionally space is limited - please contact us for details.

BOOKSHOP TALKS
We hold a series of informal talks and readings throughout the year. If you buy any book at the talk the cost of the ticket will be deducted. Please ring or email to book a place - early booking advisable.

The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.

Katherine Swift - The Morville Hours

Janie - who works here on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons - was sitting next to a lovely person at a poetry evening who turned out to be Katherine Swift. 'The Katherine Swift, The Morville Hours Katherine Swift?' asked Janie. Yes. And so it is that Katherine Swift is coming to The Woodstock Bookshop on Monday May 18th at 7.30 pm to talk about The Morville Hours, which comes out in paperback in April. If you have never heard of it you should check it out online and then wait and buy it from us at her talk. It is the most wonderful book for anyone interested in gardens, history, religion,or simply very fine writing.
