10% off all our children's books on Kinderboekendag

23 April 2015



We all remember our first book - presented solemnly to us on our 21st birthday, when we were sufficiently mature to appreciate it. But did you know that a variety of books have recently been published specifically for minors, simplified to their abilities and aligned with their interests? It's true!

It's to raise awareness of this trend that we'll be joining in with Kinderboekendag this Saturday. Our friends at Passa Porta Bookshop are welcoming writer and illustrator Leo Timmers for an event at 10am. Our "thing" is simple: 10% off all our children's books for the day. If you know any small people, pass it along.

We're alive and kicking at Wolvengracht 23

4 July 2014



The prophets foretold this many moons ago, and as the long years dragged by, god knows we all lost faith. But praise be, I bring proof! There really is a Wolvengracht 23! There are books in it! And look, one lady's even buying some!

We are officially open in our new location. It's just a 20-second walk across the road, but feel free to use our handy map below.

Thanks for all your patience and support!






Opening update

20 June 2014



The opening of the new store has slipped just a little more. Our current tentative date - barring any further unforeseen circumstances - is next Wednesday, 25 June. This isn't final though, so please keep an eye on the website before you come. Thanks so much for your patience; our aching shoulders appreciate it. *naked play for sympathy*

On the plus side: we haz a sign!
