Now opening on Tuesdays too

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.

Spring 2021 Bookwise re-opens 14th April

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.

Sort out your books for us

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
