Independent Bookshop Week and The Book Nook’s 10th Birthday

We’ve all had a fantastic time celebrating Independent Bookshop Week and our Big 10th Birthday. Thanks to Sophy Henn, Sam Copeland, Sarah Horne and Nick Sharratt for joining us for FANTASTIC book events. Huge thanks to all our lovely customers for sharing the fun with us. What an incredible week it’s been!

Watch Nick Sharratt juggling with jelly during Independent Bookshop Week. We had a fantastic time during his book event - and we have some signed books left in stock. Head to the shop for a peek.

Super Duper fun with Sophy Henn

Look at our SUPER DUPER new window display!

We had super duper fun with Book Nook favourite, author and illustrator Sophy Henn. She read her new book Super Duper You to a rapt audience and then gave a masterclass in illustrating emotions. Lots of cutting and sticking fun followed with a visor-making workshop.

Hi-fives to everyone who came along to enjoy the fun and huge thanks to Super Duper Sophy.
