About us

In 2009, I decided it was time to simply live the dream and open a bookshop. Having moved to Leicestershire for my previous job in the music industry, I spotted an empty shop on the High Street of Kibworth, resigned from my job, filled the empty shop full of books and opened the doors two weeks later just in time for Christmas. Since then, we've set up six bookclubs, hosted and provided books for events in the shop and at various other venues in the county and founded the Leicester Book Festival. In 2012, we won the regional round (Midlands and Wales) of The Independent Bookseller of The Year Award. We were also shortlistees in 2013 and 2014. None of this would have however been possible without the outstanding support of our fabulous customers. I never dreamed my bookshop could be such a success. Thank you to everyone for helping us to create and sustain our lovely environment for all you booklovers out there. - Debbie James.
