Welcome to Peakirk Books

 Telephone us on (01328) 829944

To continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, we have decided to continue the practice during 2016, as we did in 2015, that for anyone who decides to buy their book/s  here, rather than buying it from one of the agencies that stocks our books such as ABE or amazon, can have a  10% discount if they wish. To do this just use the code PBST2 when you make your purchase. (You may only use 1 voucher offer per purchase, so please do not try and use this along with another code).


Girls Gone By Books - Sale

If you are a regular customer you may be aware that we stock the new books published by Girls Gone By, the publishers of Young Adult scarce girls titles from years gone by.

For various reasons we do have some of these books that we sell below the RRP of 13.00GBP.  To help you find these I have made a new category. The usual Category for Girls Gone By Books is to look in Categories under Juvenile - New Books - Girls gone By. To find these cheaper books, look under Juvenile - New Books - Girls Gone By - Sale. We hope you find something of interest here for you. You might want to risk a new author at a cheaper price! For example -  More about Mandy is selling at 6.00GBP while stocks last.




The Book pictured below, Ozzie's Migration, tells the story of the first few month's of a young Osprey's life; from hatching in a nest at Rutland water to the epic migration to West Africa. It is a lovely little book, ideal for explaining migration to the young. Alll proceeds from sales of the book go towards the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust's Osprey Migration Foundation, helping to link communities along Osprey Migration flyways. If you would like to purchase a copy (at just 5.00GBP) please email us at and we will arrange it for you.
