This year we have decided to become involved in Independent Booksellers Week - celebrating independent bookshops, great books, strong reading communities and the idea of shopping locally.

To mark the occasion and to show our appreciation to our customers for the support they have given us over the years we are running a couple of events this week:

Wednesday 22nd June - 10% off all adult fiction
Saturday 25th June - 10% off all children's books
Saturday 25th June - Storytelling for 3 - 6 year olds from 11am

And as usual, we will have our Junior Book Club meeting on Monday at 3.30pm.

VILLAGE BOOKS is also taking part in the Independent Booksellers Book Prize 2011. To have your say, simply pop into the shop and pick up a voting slip - one lucky entrant will win a £100 National Book Token. The Top 10 Adult and Top 12 Children's titles published between January and June 2011 are listed below.
