All being well, we will be returning to Cambridge market on April 19th at our usual spot on the corner opposite Gap. We are waiting for confirmation from Cambridge market management and will keep you updated. Can’t wait, it’s been a long time!

Apologies to those of our customers who have a 10% coupon/voucher. We have just realised that these expired at the end of February. We have now extended this to the end of April so 10% should be taken off your total at the checkout. Please let us know if you have any problems.

Thank you to all our customers old and new who are supporting us by buying books through our website at the moment. We are adding more books almost every day so please continue to visit the website to see the new arrivals. Search by author or title if there is a particular book or author you are looking for, or browse the categories to see if anything interests you. You can also use the search bar to look for short stories or prize winners.

We have reverted to free delivery in Cambridge City while we are in lockdown and aim to deliver within 24 hours of your order. We can post up to 2kg of books for £3.00 anywhere in the U.K.

We have been very grateful for some very generous donations of books recently as it’s difficult to get new stock at the moment. Please contact us if you live in the Cambridge area and have any books you can donate or sell to us: we can give you 50p for each paperback and will come and collect.

Our books are all secondhand, most of them are only £2.50 each and all are carefully selected by us to reflect our taste in books and those of our customers. Most of the books on the website now have a picture of the back cover as well so you can read or remind yourself of what the book is about.



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 Square, Cambridge CB1 0SS
