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.

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.

Fiction in translation - PEN awards

Sixteen books 'displaying outstanding literary merit' have been awarded grants by English PEN - look out for them, and support the publishers (small publishers, in many cases) by buying them! The list is below. 

Following the poetry reading by Helen Mort and Frances Leviston on 20th April, our next talk is about translation.  Celia Hawkesworth is Emerita Senior Lecturer in Serbian and Croatian Studies, University College London. She has published numerous articles and several books on Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian literature and translated several novels including, most recently, Farewell, Cowboy by Olja Savicevic, one of Croatia's best-known writers. On Tuesday 28 April she will discuss the novel and the challenges of translation.
