Stack ’em up… You have a reading list? We have the textbook!


Our textbooks for the new semester are arriving thick and fast.

If you are a lecturer and you need your students to buy textbooks, let us know.  We’ll order in copies so they’re ready and waiting for when students leave lectures. And yes, in many cases, our prices are going head-to-head with a certain online retailer beginning with A!

Likewise, if you are a student and you want anything from your reading list, just ask. We’ll either have it in, or we can get it quickly for you.

Our contact details are on the right. Alternatively, upload information to Reading Lists.

Right. Time to neaten those piles of books…
