Two gorgeous book launch events in two days! We have the best job!

On Thursday we launched a brilliant YA crossover fantasy novel, Black Snow Falling by L.J. MacWhirter, which is one of the most beautiful books we've seen this year and perfect for lovers of fantasy.

On Friday night one of our favourite writers Scotland has to offer Jenni Fagan launched her new poetry collection There's a Witch in the Word Machine in a fairy-lit chapel.

Both events were magical, and better yet featured local authors and publishers! We are so lucky to get to work with such talent in the book world. Check out our other autumn events on our website and Facebook.

Tonight we launch this beautiful creature into the world! Black Snow Falling is the first YA fantasy novel by L.J. MacWhirter which can be enjoyed by anyone who loves dreams, heroes and other worlds.
It鈥檚 a beautiful novel inside but just LOOK at the amazing packaging from Scotland Street Press. Silver foil 馃槏 We鈥檒l have some signed copies in stock
afterwards so let us know if you want to reserve a copy!

Nothing to be bored about with our shiny new events board! Hope to see some of you there...

One of our favourite customers (especially now!) baked us some banana bread and it's AMAZING. Come and save us from ourselves by helping us out with it!

Left the bookshop feeling inspired after reading Nabokov's 'Signs and Symbols' at short story club so took a photo, and spotted wee doggo who lives upstairs photobombing!
