5 things we can do for our customers during Coronavirus emergency

The world seems quite overwhelming right now and like you we will be spending a lot more time at home in the coming weeks.

As a small business we have concerns yet we are fully open for business and want to do all we can to help our community.

We asked ourselves and some of our subscribers what could we do to help our wonderful customers during this uncertain and isolating time?

Books are our thing, they bring a welcome escape from reality and are essential to our mental well being, so this is what we came up with - more books, at lower prices and more to read!

1. Two books in April's crime book box

Our April monthly crime book box will now therefore contain 2 great novels, the feature title which gives the box it's Scandinavian Noir theme (you can find out the book title here) plus an Advance Reader Copy of a vintage crime book which is set to be published later in April 2020.


2. Prices slashed by 20% and free delivery

We have now reduced the prices of all the books in the books only section of our shop by 20% and delivery in the UK will be free of charge. We have something for everyone with crime thrillers, classic crime, science fiction and fantasy titles to choose from.


3. Additional paperback titles available

Swords of Silence - enamel pin

We have also added some new paperback titles to the books only section.  Including this one that comes with an exclusive enamel pin!


4. Supporting our local community

We are lucky enough to be based in beautiful rural community in South Yorkshire and have donated books to a local honesty library from which locals can borrow books safely and responsibly in this time of isolation and social distancing.

5. Book recommendations and bookish fun

We will be active on our social media channels sharing book recommendations, reading challenges, reading fun and posing bookish questions - find us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

This awful situation will come to an end, until then we will support each other as best we can and continue to read for comfort and to escape.
