Find out what we’ve been reading this week by clicking HERE


The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that we made some changes to the website last week. Hopefully these are all for the better – do tell us if you think otherwise!

The most noticeable change is to the Home page, where we have removed the Shop page from the main menu and replaced this with a Shop by Category feature. The 9 main categories of products are listed on the Home page (with photos for each and each title links to it’s category page. Some categories are then further categorised under the parent title, for example Vintage Paperbacks is further categorised into Vintage Pelican, Vintage Penguin and Vintage Crime & Thrillers.

We have also replaced the long list of categories on the right hand side of the Home page with a drop down menu and a dedicated Delivery Options page has been added to the menu so that the Home page is not so long.

There are still a few issues to be dealt with such as the fact that the ‘This Week We Have Been Mostly Reading’ post for some reason appears on the desktop website but not on the mobile site (hmmmmm – it’s all a learning curve for us).

We are continuing to work on improvements and hope for example to add a ‘sort by author’ function to the options available within each category – watch this space!


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 addresss is: Market Street, Cambridge CB2 3QJ
