Who Are We?

We’re a small but busy book business in North Nottinghamshire. Between 1992 and 2018 our bookshop in Retford served the local community with a reputation for great customer service, selling new and second-hand books. Today, we continue to serve the wider community with the same great service and with the added value of home delivery.

Home Delivery Service

Just phone us, order your book, DVD or CD, and we’ll deliver it to your home or workplace, free of charge, in a matter of days if you live within North Nottinghamshire. Our postal service can be used for all other addresses, national and international. If you prefer us not to call at your house we can arrange for you to collect your order from The Hub in Cannon Square in Retford.

eBay Shop

We have over 30 years of experience selling collectable books. To reach the widest audience we have an eBay shop at: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/bookwormtheretfordbookshop. Here you’ll find a wealth of collectable and specialist books, maps and other items to browse through.


Finally, if you are writing or have written a book why not talk to us about publishing it? We’ve published our own books since 2005 and have assisted local writers in getting their own work in print for nearly as long. Please check out our publishing page or ring us on 01777 869224 for advice, with no obligation.
