Sorry about the inconvenience, we’re hoping to *finally* get it fixed soon. 

Order Stina’s Advent Calendar

Order Stina’s Advent Calendar

Oh dear! Due to an unforeseen interest in Stina’s Advent Calendar, we simply are not able to accommodate all of you with a calendar! (If you’ve already placed an order, you’re in.)

We are absolutely over the moon and overwhelmed with all the interest you’ve shown in ordering, but unfortunately we have to draw the line somewhere – before we run out of both tea and books for this time!

Thanks again, and so sorry if you haven’t been able to order a calendar this year. We hope to return with a brand new advent calendar next year, and hopefully we will be better prepared then. And of course you are more than welcome to visit the shop or write to ask and ask for gift ideas for yourself or someone you want to spoil a little bit extra.

Happy Christmas, and stay safe!

Thanks for celebrating 25 years with us

We had an overwhelming (but safe) birthday last week! Thank you everyone who sent greetings, flower, love, orders and good cheer! And orders!

Our 100 limited edition Celebration Packages sold out in less than 8 hours!!! We’re posting them to Portugal, London, Michigan and other hotspots of bookish warm feelings. (They look slightly less charming packed up – but it’s the flat-pack idea – you can reassemble them when you get them!)

Thanks for ALL your support these first 25 years – let’s do another 25! You keep us going!
/Jan, Christer and the best bookshop staff in the known universe

Psst! Have a look in our birthday guest book and read all the lively greetings – and why not add your own!

Celebrating 25 years in the service of books!

Celebrating 25 years

UPPSALA | Wednesday 18th November 2020

Today the bookshop celebrates 25 years in the service of books (and book lovers) – that’s a quarter of a century!

Thank you everyone for making these first 25 years possible. From the very first day we opened the first shop in Uppsala on the chilly November banks of the River Fyris it’s been completely true that we do what we do in an ongoing conversation with you – our customers – and none of this would have been possible without your continued support. We may feel a bit older now, but we’re seriously happy. Thanks.

This last year has been a seriously strange year, but the way you have rallied around us makes us both proud happy and somewhat bashful…. You’ve come running – by phone, email, foot, bike, car, social media – to express your concern and support and – to place your orders and join the bookclub. This has carried us through the pandemic hitherto. Thank you.

If things had been less irregular we would have thrown a big party but as it is we’ll have to move that to next year sometime. But do check out the guest book and if you can – stop by the shop and say hello. We’re here for you, safely, now and in future.

SIGN THE GUEST BOOK – SEND A BIRTHDAY GREETING! Send a birthday greeting or share a memory of the bookshop – in social media or in our birthday guest book. Read more at www.bookshop.se/25years

(Feel free to tell the world that your favourite bookshop is celebrating a quarter of a century – use the tag #englishbookshop25 in the socials)

Celebration Package to celebrate 25 years

Limited Edition 25 year Celebration Package

*** Sorry, the limited edition celebration packages are now sold out (gone like hotcakes!) ***

To celebrate the fact that it’s 25 years today since we opened the Uppsala shop we have produced a limited edition 25th Anniversary Celebration Package for you lovely people!

It contains a very pretty Anniversary Mug (only 100 made!), a Penguin Black Classic (a different one in each package!) – stamped with the bookshop stamp and hand dated, a bag of our English Bookshop Blend tea (made by our friends at Tehörnan Uppsala and hand decorated for the occasion by them!), a souvenir postcard with our friend Jonas Bok & Bild's marvellous artwork of our bookshop corner – plus a celebration card numbered from 1 to 100.

We only have the 100 Celebration Packages and we only turn 25 once – so make sure you get yours! Buy it at the bookshop in Uppsala, or order yours on the link below for pick-up or have it sent to you. (We’re doing all we can to avoid crowding and to keep everyone safe and comfortable.) They’re priced at 250:- each and are for bookshop lovers only. You know who you are. :-)
