Ashlee: Being able to recommend my favourite reads to customers.

Chloe: Helping to encourage a love of reading for people of all ages and seeing excited children coming to the store to pick their next book!

What was the last book you read and loved?

Aisling: An advance copy of The Burning Chambers by Kate Mosse - just as amazing as her other stories!

Ashlee: Mythos by Stephen Fry. It's a humorous take on Greek mythology.

What is one thing you would like people to know about your bookshop?

Aisling: The community events we hold, particularly our monthly Young Adult Book Club (which we love!) and our bi-monthly Books at Bars events.

Ashlee: We have YA book clubs every month that are a hit with customers.

Chloe: That we don't just sell books! We have fantastic non-book products such as Harry Potter-inspired candles and bookish bath bombs. We also regularly stock book-related Pop Vinyls and merchandise!
