The Aldeburgh Bookshop Book Club meets on the first Monday of each month at 6.00 pm in the bookshop.  Everyone is welcome.  See Book Club page for details of forthcoming sessions

We are a traditional independent bookshop situated on the High Street in the fashionable town of Aldeburgh.  The bookshop was founded in 1949 and the current owners, John and Mary James, have run the shop since 2000.  We stock a wide range of history, biography, fiction, travel writing and books on Suffolk, as well as cookery, gardening, natural history and a dedicated children's department.  We operate a booksearch service, and we any of our staff are happy to advise customers.  We can get most books in stock by the following working day, and we post parcels all over the world.

'This great local bookshop is the best place to browse and buy for miles around – and is the epitome what a bookstore should be: well-stocked, welcoming and staffed by people who love books. The owners, John and Mary James, have been just over a decade, and won the 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' and the British Book Awards a few years ago, and the only wonder is that they haven't won it since, not only because their range is wide, well-chosen and beautifully displaye, with a regular churn of new and interesting volumes on tables, but also for the general ambience of the place, and its contribution to the local community - they run a book club once a month on Monday evenings, organise the annual Aldeburgh Literary Festival and even invite their regulars to share their Desert Island Books, which naturally none can resist.'  (www.coolplaces.co.uk).

'The Aldeburgh Bookshop has retained an inviting atmosphere and boasts a fantastic selection that simply makes it an ideal hunting ground for literary treasures - for our whole family, aged 13 to 45.'  (Monica Koch in The Guardian).
