Antiquarian, new and second-hand books - all under one roof
Books & Ink is a real live bookshop, nestled in the alleys of the historic north Oxfordshire 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.  booksandinkbookshop
 eat sleep read 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 dip and soar and 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.
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 don't scream and shout and throw themselves at you from the doorway but stand sedately on the shelves, tall and upright, side-by-side with the next bestseller waiting to be discovered, and with glorious literature from ages past.  booksandinkbookshopinterior
 white lion walk wisteria banbury Our online portal cannot, yet, transport you to this wonderful realm of paper and ink, but it can show and tempt you with around a quarter of our much-loved books and perhaps entice you to come and see all the other word-filled pages we have in our Tardis-like bookshop.
For reasons of a practical and fiscal (and therefore quite uninteresting) nature, you won't find many new books listed here on our website. We have many more residing in our real world book palace and hundreds upon thousands upon gazillions more we can obtain for you within a few human-time working days, or sometimes even by the very next day. Many of our new books are already discounted. We have been frequently been known to be cheaper than online retail giants, though we know that's not why you choose our quaint and relaxing haven over those.  many new books discounted
 antiquarian books banner booksandink We love you to browse and discover new things on your own - in the style of a personal quest. But if you need help you can ask and will try and help you with your journey; gift-type quests for children a speciality.
If you're stuck in the land of cybers and clouds and are unable to visit our earthling paradise, we'd love you to keep in touch with us via facebook and twitter. We can let you know about all things going on at cyberland Books & Ink, together with all the even better things you're missing out on at Books & Ink planet Earth. You can keep us updated with your news too and tell us about great books you've read and all that.  socail media banner booksandink web
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 tome, 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.
