Our ‘like new’ books make perfect Christmas gifts

Our shop is offering a great range of books in pristine condition – just like new – ideal Christmas presents.  Novels in hardback with immaculate dust jackets selling originally for £15-£25 are now all £3, or two for £5.  There are also lots of fascinating and beautifully illustrated non-fiction books on a wide range of subjects, in similarly mint condition and at equally bargain prices.  Children’s books too.   Something for everyone.  Located on your route from the Motorpoint Arena Ice Stadium to Nottingham’s Christmas Market, we are open seven days a week in December running up to Christmas – please note Sunday opening is 11am to 3pm.

Notts TV features Bookwise

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.

Bookwise cameo appearance in new film

Bookwise Goose Gate was delighted to host the film crew of Adrift in Soho a while back, for a couple of scenes demanding a ‘retro’ bookshop setting.  Lots more Nottingham locations feature in this acclaimed independent film of the 1961 cult novel  by Colin Wilson.  Free viewing at 12 noon on 19 November at the Broadway Cinema – make sure you book ahead – asap.  Since the filming, Bookwise has grown bigger and even better of course – come and see.
