This week I have started going in to the bookshop on Monday Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2-4 pm to answer the phone and take orders and queries. I am once again able to order books, although delivery is slower than usual. If there is anything you would like, do email any time or ring between the times above. I will ring or email once the book arrives and arrange payment and delivery or collection. I am happy to deliver in and around Woodstock, and today delivered a couple of parcels to Wootton stores for people in the village to collect.
New titles are beginning to appear in the shop - there is a new Anne Tyler, for example! And Maggie O'Farrell's Hamnet, which is sadly very topical.
Many thanks for your friendship and support, and I look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future.
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 Independent's Top 50 UK Bookshops.
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.
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.
WOODSTOCK POETRY FESTIVAL
The bookshop started and runs Woodstock Poetry Festival, a completely independent festival that has now been running for 8 years.
The Woodstock Literature Society also holds an excellent series of monthly talks - do visit their website for further details.
