Jarrold's Book Department

‘Between the pages of a book is a wonderful place to be.’ - Anon

Jarrold has been in business since 1770 and in its early days, the company's roots were in printing, publishing and bookselling: we are passionate about the written word and since 1823 have been booksellers on London Street, Norwich.

Today our book department offers a carefully curated, far-reaching range of books for adults and children: browse our categories online to find brilliant new reads and find many, many more titles in store where our team are on hand with recommendations and a bespoke ordering service.

We understand the joy, relaxation, inspiration and excitement books can provide for readers of all ages. We regularly host authors at in-store book events, we champion local writers and publishers and are proud of our extensive, well-respected Local Interest section. We are also partners of the annual East Anglian Book Awards.

We have a Jarrold book club and offer discounts to all other book clubs too. All customers can benefit from our books loyalty card. For book-ish news, reviews and reading lists, keep up to date with the Book Edit from our book buyer Holly.

Browse our shelves for local books, new and classic fiction, gripping non fiction, inspiring biographies and imaginative books for young children, older children and young adults. Rustle up a feast with our varied range of cook books or learn about sport or history
