About Books & Ink Bookshop
Run by proprietor Samantha Barnes, Books & Ink is a traditional independent bookshop situated in the market town of Banbury, just on the edge of the Cotswolds.
We stock over 25,000 books - new and old, antiquarian, second-hand, brand new, remaindered (publisher's end of line stocks). We price check our stock regularly and you'll find our prices very competitive. If you're looking for a book, and we don't have it in stock, we are more than happy to order it in for you, either brand new if it's still in print, or through an out-of-print no obligation booksearch. Being booklovers ourselves we know how important it is to find the right book and we will do everything we can to help you.
Approximately a third of our stock is currently available online - to view or purchase through our website. If you are looking for a book and don't see it here, please get in touch - we may still have a copy in our shop. Due to the rate of turnover, much of our new stock is available in store only - do email us if you are looking for a particular title.
Directions to the bookshop can be found here.

As well as being a retail bookshop, we also welcome orders and enquiries from corporate bodies and are delighted to be able to offer special discounts on accounts with local businesses, schools and libraries. Whether purchasing books for library enhancement, staff training and development, employee incentives or client gifts, we will be happy to assist you.
Services for Local Schools and Colleges
We can offer competitive standard discounts to local schools and colleges. We occasionally have extra discount promotions available on larger orders, especially large orders of single titles. We offer free local delivery for orders over £150. Please enquire for details. All new book and audio book orders usually arrive in the shop within a few days. We can also offer an out-of-print / second-hand ordering service if required.
Supporters of Registered Charity, Book Aid International
In our Banbury shop we provide for our customers a complimentary tea and coffee service (self-service), for which we request a small charitable donation. All of the monies raised through this service are then donated to Book Aid International.
