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 Bookseller of the Year in 2009 and 2013, and listed in the recent Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.

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 and Wootton Village Hall also hold excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their websites for further details.

Alice Oswald talking about Memorial

Those of you who came to hear Alice Oswald at the Woodstock poetry festival might enjoy seeing a little clip of her reciting the final section here, and also a fascinating interview with David Morley (who read the following day), when she was given the Warwick Prize. She talks about bringing a poem to life - 'the god passes through the room when you get a poem alive...when you hear it in a room something quite supernatural happens' -which is perhaps the best description of what did happen when she gave us Memorial.
