It's happening: we are having another Kilo Sale!


If you didn't make it to any of our previous sales, or if this is the first you've heard of them or even of us, then get excited! We're offering you the chance to browse stacks and stacks of books, all at just £2 per kilo.

If you have made it to our previous sales and you know exactly what they're about, then this will all be old news to you, so just take this as an invitation to join us once again.

This time the sale will take place on the August Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday, the 25th and 26th of August. On both days, we will be opening up our warehouse doors from 11am - 5pm and allowing you the unique opportunity to dive into the stock that we have waiting to go up onto our shelves both in the warehouse and in the shop.

There will be a huge range of books to look at, from brand new books to kids books to vintage books and much more, and there will also be a selection of vinyl records, CDs and DVDs. It's an opportunity that's impossible to miss.


As usual, we'll be opening up our shop, Darwin room and the Full Stop Cafe to make sure that there's lots of fun for all of the family for the duration of the sale.

Our children's area is situated next to the cafe, so parents - if you're hot and bothered and need to sit down with a nice iced coffee or smoothie, you can let your kids roam amongst the shelves without having to panic about where they've disappeared to.

The cafe is fully vegetarian and serves a huge range of delicious treats - I for one am rather partial to a veggie sausage sandwich smothered in tomato ketchup.

The shop and the Darwin room will be filled to the rafters with books of all shapes and sizes, including our brand new books and our vintage books.

We will also be offering tours of our warehouse, which we only offer on Kilo Sales (and on occasion, to very lucky school children). The tours will take place at 11.30, 12.30, 2.30 and 3.30 on both days of the event, and we can only take a few small groups, so make sure to get your booking in quick. Tours can be booked by social media or by speaking to one of our customer service team in store or via phone or email.

So, if this sounds like an absolute, to good to be true dream to you, then make sure to put us in your diary! Block out some time on either the 25th or the 26th of August, or both if you're hardcore, and come and join in the fun. I promise it'll be worth it.

Keep an eye on our social media for more information and make sure to let us knows if you're coming!
