Downstairs on the ground floor, in addition to new titles, sport and fiction, this family-orientated store features a welcoming children's section, complete with hanging book display, and a cosy reading corner, which hosts events and storytelling during school holidays.
Our knowledgeable and experienced booksellers are, as always, on hand to help you find exactly what you're looking for, whether it's a new favourite for bedtime, revision and course guides to pass those all-important exams, or the perfect gift.

Persepolis - Marjane Satrapi
Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel memoir of growing-up in Iran at the time of the Islamic revolution. As a religious lock-down paralyses the country, young Marji is nurtured in a loving family environment of liberal, independent thought. Illustrated in an elegantly uncomplicated black and white style, this is an absorbing and moving account of a young woman growing into adulthood and striving to find her own voice in a world of male and religious oppression.
The Rider -Mark Krabbe
If you've never ridden a cycle race and want to know what it'd be like, read this book. If you have ridden a cycle race and want to relive all that nervous effort and exhaustion, read this book. No other account, fictional or biographical, re-creates so vividly the physical and mental pain involved.
Annihilation - Jeff VanderMerr
"There was only one logical conclusion: Experience told our superiors that few, if any of us, would be coming back."
Every expedition to Area X has ended in mystifying disaster. People come back hollowed out, empty shells, if they come back at all. There have been eleven expeditions; this is the twelfth. Deeply unnerving, Annihilation keeps you gripped to the very end; everything close enough to reality to feel almost possible in the most unsettling way. And once you get to the end, you'll hopefully do what I did - run out immediately to buy the next two.
