Welcome to our website. This is the online home of both our lovely shops: the Chorleywood Bookshop and the Gerrards Cross Bookshop. If you want to book places for one of our many high profile events, purchase a limited edition book, or find out how to get hold of us to place orders or make a query, you’re in the right place!

We would love you to pop in to one of our shops too. The best thing about owning independent bookshops is hearing all about the books you love (and hate!) and sharing our passion for reading with you.

To step in to the Chorleywood or Gerrards Cross bookshop is to be a part of our community so please do come and say hello.
