About Us

Welcome to The Book Shop!

Set in the Cornish market town of Liskeard, The Book Shop has been shortlisted four times (2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017) in the British Book Industry Awards for the best Independent Bookshop for the South West region. As a small bookshop, our continued and increasing success is as a result of one thing, our commitment to building and nurturing our relationship with the local community.

It is a bright comfortable shop with a wide range of new books, fiction and non-fiction for adults, young adults and children. We also sell a range of non-book items: notebooks, book marks, book stands, magnifying glasses and a beautiful range of cards, some made by local artists.

If you can’t come to the shop, then why not order right here on the website or call us on 01579 342112?

Your order can be sent to you, or to any other address you give us.

Our Team

Our Booksellers

Upon entering the shop you will be greeted by one of our three booksellers. We’ll happily help you with your book search, showing you the books that we have enjoyed, recommending the latest publications and, of course, helping your children, nieces, nephews or grandchildren.

If we don’t have the book you are looking for, we can order it and aim to have it in the shop within 24 hours or post it straight to your door.

Buying a book as a gift? We can personally wrap it for you too for no extra charge.
