Who Are We?

We’re a family-run book business based 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, collectables, Games Workshop and other interesting items.

Home Delivery Service

After completing our 25-year lease we decided it was time for a change and the Bookworm Home Delivery Service was born, bringing that same customer service to your door. 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, personally if you live within Bassetlaw or by post if you live further afield. If you prefer us not to call we can arrange for you to collect at our partners at The Hub on Cannon Square in Retford.

eBay Shop

We also sell books online from our eBay shop at https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/bookwormtheretfordbookshop. Here you’ll find a 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.
