Books & Ink is a bricks & mortar bookshop, nestled in the alleys of the historic north Oxfordshire market town of Banbury. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle in the surrounds of a former famous coaching inn, the White Lion, the cool beamed interior welcomes you as you step through the front door and invites you to escape the pressures of the world outside. 

In this safe haven new books and old meet and mingle; more than 25,000 of them vying for your attention. Take time to look. Special gems tuck themselves away, down low, up high. Bestsellers aren't piled high just inside the doorway but stand sedately on the shelves, side-by-side with the next bestseller waiting to be discovered... and with glorious literature from ages past.

For practical reasons we don't list many of our new books online. We have loads more in our book palace (aka the bookshop) and hundreds upon thousands more we can obtain for you within a few human-time working days, or sometimes by the very next day. Many of our new books are already discounted and we offer a discount on most new book orders too. We have frequently been known to be cheaper than online retail giants, though we know that's not the only reason our customers choose us!

If you can't visit us very often, we'd still love you to keep in touch with us via facebook and twitter. We can let you know about all things going on at Books & Ink and you can keep us updated with your news too and tell us about great books that you've read and enjoyed.
         
Whether you have 10 minutes or a couple of hours to spare, come on in and as you mooch around, encountering curious corners and friendly-looking books, let your imagination take you away - to other realms, to other times, to far off places and to those escapist lands hidden within the deepest recesses of our hearts and minds.

Our online portal cannot, yet, transport you to this wonderful realm of paper and ink (Floo Powder is on order but always seems to be out-of-stock at the Harry Potter wholesalers), but our website can show and tempt you with around a quarter of our beautiful book stock and perhaps entice you to come and see all the other wonderful things we have in our Tardis-like bookshop. 

We love you to browse and discover new things on your own - in the style of an Arthurian quest. But if you need help you can ask and we will try and help you with your search. Gift-type quests for children are a speciality.
 
So that's all there is to say about me, the little bookshop with a big heart. Anytime you fancy an escape, need a textbook, a holiday read, a bestseller, an obscure out-of-print research volume, or an extra special gift, we'd love to see you. Come and find us in Banbury on the edge of the north Oxfordshire Cotswolds.
