What we’re reading & when we’re meeting


Did you know that we run two book groups in the shop? Both meet every month to discuss books that are chosen by the members and both are friendly and sociable and we offer 15% off their books of the month for those intending to come along.

Our General Readers will be meeting on 11 Feb at 7pm to talk about Madeline Miller‘s prize nominated, gripping, enchanting and liberally doused with magic from the ancient world, stunner Circe.

Meanwhile, our thriller readers, the West End Lane Crooks group, meet a few days later on 13 Feb, also at 7pm to discuss Mick Herron‘s standalone novella The Catch which bristles with the darkest humour, sharp observations and wicked political sketches from the warped world of contemporary spycraft.

No booking required, just turn up and pipe up!

Bookshops, bodies and getting away with murder

Investigate A Body In The Bookshop with author Helen Cox


We’ll come clean: we love a spot of crime fiction and our mighty thriller book group, West End Lane Crooks, regularly investigates the best of the genre, from golden age classics, through Scandi Noir, psychological, hardboiled etc, but there is always a special and warm, fuzzy place in our hearts for that most British of things, the cosy crime novel.

So we were delighted to come across Helen Cox, whose novels are set in her native York, and her librarian sleuth Kit Hartley. And as her latest is set in a bookshop how could we possibly not invite her to speak?

Well we couldn’t, so please join us for the delightful evening of feel-good crime when Helen pops in to talk about A Body In The Bookshop on March 26th at 7.30pm

Entry is free, but please book your place via 0207 431 3770 or info@welbooks.co.uk
