Get more from the Book Department

As proudly 'old-fashioned' booksellers, we know books, and we love books.  If we were invited to appear on Mastermind, take a guess as to our specialist subject!  Because of our passion for books, we have a number of services that we can offer to help you get the most out of your literary adventures...

The Jarrold Book Club

If you love books and reading, why not join our Book Club?
