Newsflash – reduced opening Saturday 17 October

Our shop will open at 1.15 pm on Saturday 17 October and close at 4pm.

We are sorry we have had to withdraw our normal Saturday morning opening on this occasion and hope that regular Saturday morning customers can arrange to come along in the afternoon on the 17th.

This is just a one-off and we should revert to our ‘normal’ hours (in these abnormal times) next week.

NEW – We are now adding Thursday mornings to our opening times.

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
