The Bookish website was originally set up to reflect the stock at our stall during lockdown. It has become apparent that the huge amount of stock makes the site difficult to browse and there are obviously more options available to people online, which has meant that our orders have dropped considerably. It is a time consuming job to keep the website stocked and ensure we update it constantly when we sell at the stall.


We have therefore taken the decision to close the website temporarily while we have a rethink. It will be available until Christmas and we plan to relaunch in the spring.


Thank you to all our customers, old and new, who come to our stall on Monday and Tuesday.

We are on the market every Monday and most Tuesdays in the run up to Christmas. After Christmas we will be taking a break for a couple of months and plan to return in March.


We will unfortunately be unavailable to accept book donations in February.


Click and Collect continues to be a popular option. Simply follow the instructions below and avoid the (very small) delivery charge. Books can be collected on a Monday or Tuesday – please let us know if possible which day.

Should we be unable to attend the market on either of those days and you have put in an order, we will let you know and offer free delivery to compensate.

In order to use this service, please enter the address of the Market into the delivery address box: The address is: Market Square, Cambridge CB1 0SS
