10% OFF ALL STOCK, MYSTERY BOOKSWAP, TWO NOVELISTS, ‘A BOOK FOR ALL SEASONS’ LAUNCH, AND A FREE BAG + WINE!
6pm – 8.30pm SATURDAY 11th OCTOBER
On October 11th independent bookshops across the country will be holding a party. At The Hungerford Bookshop we would love it if you would pop in to see us for bookish chat and plenty of wine (Emma’s favourite thIngs!).
You will also receive a FREE ‘Book is My Bag’ canvas tote and 10% off all books in the shop – a great way to start your Christmas shopping.
Early birds will catch novelists GILL HORNBY and ROBERT HARRIS who will be popping in to support the Books are My Bag Campaign (dedicated to keeping books on the high street)
We will be hosting a ‘MYSTERY BOOK SWAP’ – just wrap-up a copy of a book you have enjoyed in paper, and write a few words to describe it on the wrap (but not the title). So it could say ‘page-turner’, ‘set in Canada’, ‘historical fiction’ etc – bring it along and swap it for someone else’s.
We are very excited to announce the launch for our ”A BOOK FOR ALL SEASONS’ concept – a very special gift for someone you love. After a ‘book-fitting’ consultation (or a chat about books over coffee), we will provide you with a bespoke series of titles to read over the course of a year. You may either indulge yourself, or buy the ‘treatment’ for a friend as a gift that lasts an entire year. The treatment could be monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, and if any of the books provoke a strong reaction, we can re-tailor the subsequent titles accordingly! Please ask us about this if you need more info.
Copies of the Chrostmas catalogue will also be available – and if you have not yet booked tickets for the literary festival (17-22 October) then please take the opportunity to purchase tickets or take away a copy of the programme.
This event is free – but please RSVP (we wouldn’t want to run-out of wine)
