Covid19/Coronavirus - How it affects our business - as of 17/3/2020 we will not be attending book fairs for the forseeable future - it is most unlikely they will be going ahead. We will keep you updated as news comes in.

Our internet business however will continue as usual. In fact we are aware that more than ever people will need reading material due this time of less socialisation. We use Royal Mail for postage, and at present in the UK there appears to be no problem. However with European Countries closing their borders - to people, not goods, there maybe slight delays as checks take place. For up to date information go to Royal Mail Website at 

We wish all our customers the best of health. 


Booksearching on our website -If you wish to search for something specific on our site eg I-Spy books, simply go to the quick search box in the top left hand corner , enter I-Spy and search. Likewise you can do author searches and title searches in the same box. 

* FOR BOOK FAIRS WE ARE ATTENDING THROUGHOUT 2020, please check dates & location by clicking on "Peakirk Book Fairs " in the Navigation list on the left-hand side of this page *

   *We ARE happy to discuss the books, their content and/their condition with customers on the telephone (01328 829944) or by e-mail ([email protected])  because we work full time in the business and we can simply go and get the books off the shelves to answer your queries.

*Customer Service IS important to us

*If these values are important to you please support us !

We have decided to continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, and so the offer of 10% discount 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, stays throughout 2019. 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).


For general enquiries - we are usually here most days keeping normal working hours. However if we are not there, we have a 24 hour answerphone, so just leave a message or send us an e-mail on [email protected].

Our address is Cherry Tree Lodge. Guist Bottom Road, Stibbard, Fakenham, Norfolk. NR21 0AQ.
