Book Subscriptions

Unwrap a new book, carefully selected by us, every month!

A longstanding intention is at last being put into action!

We are starting our own book subscription offer. Each month we’ll choose (after much heated debate, passionate argument, possible fisticuffs, reconciliation and finally, accord) a book that we love, that we really can’t stop thinking about, and that we would love to see being widely read. We’ll wrap it dotingly and either post it out to you, or ready it for collection from the shop.

We think this is a really exciting way to broaden reading habits, to read books that would otherwise have remained strangers, and perhaps discover writers who truly excite.

Browse Gloucester Road Books online

Everything in stock on our shelves & table is also available to browse online. You can order to collect from the shop, or for delivery to your door. If you’re looking for a specific book and can’t see it listed anywhere here we can usually still order it for you – just give us the details here and we’ll get back to you with availability.
