amazing creatures at 1pm on Saturday 11th February.

Happy New Year!

in

Happy New Year, The English Bookshop (2011) We want to wish all our friends and customers a great 2012 and thank you for 2011 which has been by far the best year for The English Bookshop in our entire 16 year history. Never before have we sold so many books, never before have we had so many great conversations with customers, read so many great books or had so much fun.

And it all comes down to you.
So from all of us at the shop(s):
Thank You for making sure we'll be around to see another year.
Together we will make it even better.
You all rock. (In a literary, sophisticated way, of course.)

…All I want for Christmas is a happy ending…

Christmas is coming: the geese are getting fat.

But that’s not all that’s happening.

Tyler is searching for an angel that looks just right. Sam is worried about polar bears. Dylan and Bronwen hear a ghost on Christmas Eve. But what about Bradley? He is setting a trap for Santa!

Come for yuletide yarns where things end well (except for the goose) at 1pm on Sunday 4th December.
