A Year with Jane Austen – Lady Susan & Sanditon

in

Austen reading group – Lady Susan, Sanditon

UPPSALA | Thursday 17 March at 19:00

Welcome to a Year with Jane Austen! We have been longing to give some focus to one of our favourite authors for a while, and now it’s time. Welcome to a Jane Austen year at The English Bookshop!

We start off with a reading group and discussion about two of her lesser known works: Sanditon and Lady Susan. This reading group meets up already in a week on Thursday 17th March at 19.00 in the bookshop to discuss these two short novels (so there’s still time to be able to read them before the meeting). They are both collected in the same book, which also brings you a third novel as a bonus – The Watsons.

Book your seat today! This will take place in the Uppsala shop, so please remember to book a seat in advance and prepare for tea and cakes and conversation!

Welcome on Thursday 17th March at 19.00, and hopefully we’ll get to know a favourite author a little bit better!

Stay tuned for more Austen events during this year with Jane Austen.

Thank You Weekend 25-27 February – 3for2 on everything

UPPSALA & STOCKHOLM | Fri 25–Sun 27 February 2022

3for2 on everything in our shops! All Thank You Weekend, Friday 25–Sunday 27 February 2022. A small way of saying Thank You for sticking with us and supporting us during the pandemic (and fingers crossed it will be over soon, for realz. The pandemic, that is...).

3for2 on everything in our shops (well, except staff and bookshelves), all weekend. (Unfortunately only on in-shop purchases this time.)

Every third book (or item) for free. Buy 3 – pay for 2. Buy 6 – pay for 4. Buy 9 – pay for 6. (you get the idea…)

Don’t forget to bring your shopping bags (or big wheelie trunks, if we know you right...) ;-)

 

We’ve been through a lot together… Through thick and thin, pandemic and restrictions, supply chain delays and lorry shortages – you have supported the bookshop in so many different ways.

THANK YOU! We knew our customers were the best, yet you managed to surprise us once again by the extent of your support and love for the bookshop.

This Thank You Weekend and 3for2 offer is just a small way of trying to say THANK YOU for your continued love and support. And we can’t wait to see you in the shops so we can thank you in person!

Last call for special orders

Last Orders!! There’s still a chance to get your special orders in for Christmas for books not already in our 20.000 title stocked range!

Visit, call, email or send us a message and we’ll check with our UK wholesaler that they have stock and include it with our final Christmas order placed on Thursday morning. The deadline for you is Wednesday 15th at midnight.

And if Santa’s reindeer don’t get held up crossing the channel, your book will be here mid next week. Fingers crossed!

If you want to order anything from our regular hoard of books, we’ll be posting books to you for another week!
