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.
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.

Let Books be Books
Well, finally! If you click here you will see that authors and booksellers have started a campaign to end selling books targeted sepcifically at boys or girls - see my post for 5th June 2013, Can a Boy Read a Book by a Woman? I feel very strongly about this and always refuse to stock anything labelled 'boy' or 'girl' - but even if there are no labels, the design and colours send the same message. Congratulations to Malorie Blackman for drawing attention to this - just what a children's laureate should be doing....
