From Tuesday 20 July, Bookwise in Goose Gate, Nottingham, will extend the days we are open from four to five. Our new opening hours are
Tuesday to Saturday 11.00am to 4.00pm
We hope to keep this going permanently and eventually add Monday opening, too, but it depends on Nottingham coming through the Covid-19 unlocking well. We are continuing to follow covid-security protocols to keep the shop environment safe and we would appreciate it very much if customers would do their bit and continue to wear masks in the shop and also to use the gloves or hand sanitiser so that everyone stays safe handling books.
Your support and co-operation since re-opening in May have been fantastic. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Welcome back to Bookwise! Our shop in Goose Gate Nottiingham will re-open on Wednesday 14th April and we very much look forward to seeing regular customers once more and making the acquaintance of new ones.
In the week of 12 April, we will be open Wednesday to Saturday inclusive and our opening hours will be
11am to 4pm
If the national roadmap continues to roll out unimpeded, we hope to extend opening days and times gradually over coming weeks – please watch this space.
We have newly-donated stock on sale in many sections, including History and Art, as well as sheet music and CDs. Come and see!
The shop retains all the covid-secure arrangements that were operated before the latest lockdown. Your co-operation in following these will be much appreciated.

Tues 22 and Weds 23 10.30am- 4.00pm
Thurs 24 Dec 10.30am-2.00pm

Our premises are covid-secure and the number of customers in the shop at any one time is limited, so occasionally it may be necessary to queue outside. We greatly appreciate your co-operation with this and other safeguards we are operating in the shop.
December is always a wonderful time at Bookwise. We have many special ‘As New’ books in almost every subject area, and some beautifully illustrated Foilio Society books and vintage/antique volumes. They all make fabulous Christmas presents, at very favourable prices. During lockdown we have replenished stocks of our more everyday books too, so you can also snap up a few bargains to provide your own perfect reading for the Christmas/New Year break.
Dear Bookwise Customers
We are very sad that our lovely shop is closed, like almost everything else, because of the corvid-19 regulations. Thank you so much – donors and customers – who have helped to make Bookwise Goose Gate such a resource for so many people, a great fund-raiser for Music for Everyone (every penny goes to them) and such a pleasure to volunteer in.
We can hardly wait for the day when all this will be over, we take down the shutters and welcome you all back through the door once more!
While you are stuck at home, perhaps you will sort through your bookshelves and pick out a few great books that you feel able to donate to us. Please keep them on one side. Books on any subject – and sheet music or CDs – in good condition are welcome, but we have a big demand for paperbacks in these categories:
contemporary fiction literary classics Shakespeare plays poetry
local interest philosophy history archaeology art history fine art sport
Greek and Roman classics in translation photography psychology popular science
Keep well everyone, keep reading!
All best wishes, Your Bookwise Team
November is National Novel Writing Month. Bookwise in Goose Gate featured as the filming location for a Notts TV package promoting it. Three interviewees appeared on the Ey Up Notts magazine programme but of course we like to think that the bookshop backdrop was the star of the show! Watch the package by clicking here – second item, about 7 minutes in.
Delighted, through this event, to have met Matt Turpin from Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature and to have started to link Bookwise into our city’s great project.
