Day 2: Independent Booksellers
2nd December: Today we are sharing a little bit of festive love for our independent booksellers: Heywood Hill, Rossiter Books and Bookshop.org
Heywood Hill based in Mayfair, London have made the finest gift in a subscription service for all lovers of books and there are a range of subscriptions from hardbacks, paperbacks for adults to children too. If you are or know of someone who is a bookworm - head over to our stories to find out more!
Bookshop.org have made a super easy, convenient platform to sell local bookshop merchandise online - a new, ethical alternative to Amazon! Hoorah! Supporting our local bookshops on a global platform, so great! They say so brilliantly: 'We believe that bookshops are essential to a healthy culture. They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our high streets and communities.'
Vellum Libraries have curated and designed a masterpiece. A service which helps individuals and businesses choose the right collection of books, according to reading tastes and the interests of those clients. Their approach is unique, and they can tailor a book collection to a specific theme or topic.
‘If, as Henry Ward Beecher said :- 'A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life' then I say that Vellum Libraries are a necessity for everyone who understands the luxury of reading and the joy that well organised books can bring us.’ Emma Burns - Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler
