Welcome to The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley


This week the Booker Prize longlist has been announced. Come in and see what the fuss is about! We have nearly all the list (some are not yet published, or temporarily out of stock). Why not see if you can pick your own winner?

Now that life is becoming more 'normal', a lot of us are questioning what the immediate future will look like. Our book of the week is Matt Haig's Comfort Book (£16.99) which gives great suggestions to help make the tough days easier.
