I hope you are all coping with the strange and unsettling week that we are enduring. Another lockdown sadly means that many of our wonderful local shops have closed their doors to the public… including the excellent bookshops that we are so lucky to have here in Felixstowe, Treasure Chest Books, Stillwater Books and Poor Richards.
Now I don’t know about you but if the last lockdown taught me anything, it’s that I simply cannot bear to be without something to read. So booklovers, I urge you to RESIST the lure of impersonal online shopping and make use of the brilliant facilities our locked down bookshops can offer.
You can see what each shop will provide below:
POOR RICHARDS BOOKS:
You can browse the Poor Richards Books collection via Abe Books here:
STILLWATER BOOKS: offering FREE local delivery and can post books anywhere. You can get in touch via email firstname.lastname@example.org or give them a ring on 01394 548 010.

All our brilliant independent bookshops have worked so hard to make book shopping safe and enjoyable for us all over the past few strange months: they more than deserve our support over the coming 4 weeks and beyond.
