Why not order any 'in print' book from 'Bookwise' and help support Music for Everyone? Bookwise sells sheet music, CD's, new books on music, music themed cards and gifts as well as a good selection of donated second hand books and all donated items are in support of Music for Everyone. Bookwise will accept donations but does not purchase books

 Add a comment  Hide commentsAbove average charity bookshop, worth a visit in the now cultural book desert that is Nottingham apart from the excellent Jermy & Waterton. Sadly no longer has a specialist CD shop attached. - Norman Davies 13.11.17.
    When I was there a woman was animatedly pricing referring to a book comparison site and commenting on all the 'valuable' books they had on sale. Oh dear. No good can come of this, I fear. My concerns are more than borne out by the adventurous prices some of the volumes now carry. - Steven Kelly 18.01.20.

About 2,500 modestly-priced books on display, with more in stock: Specialisms: history, philosophy, essays, poetry, politics, sociology, various sciences. Also fiction, biographies, natural history, medicine, technology, agriculture, local studies, arts and crafts. Recently moved back from Southwell, Notts – where it was described by an entry in this Guide as: ‘a gem of a bookshop’ and on a UNESCO website as ‘a small, but perfectly-formed bookshop.’

 Add a comment  Hide commentsA recent find in much loved Southwell. If you are visiting this delightful town and like me love books, do not miss this little gem. The owner is charming, well informed and helpful and there are many treasures waiting to be found. Well stocked and well laid out, I could happily have spent an hour or so just browsing. I will definitely be back. If you don't know Southwell, look for Bull Yard (or ask) as it is hidden away off Queen Street. - Liz Bentley 26.07.15.
    Incredible well stocked bookshop with an excellent variety of books. Very peaceful and welcoming shop and the books are excellent prices and very good condition etc. Definitely worth a stop to support an independent book shop. - Emily Birch 18.02.16.
    Great to find this gem of a bookshop, full of books to make you think, across a range of topics. I appreciate the newsletter with its recommendations which are right up my street. - Peter Cansfield 18.02.16.
    A wonderful shop with a very astute and knowledgable owner. An inviting selection of books to browse and enjoy. A particularly good range of philosophy books. Well worth a visit. - Tony Walker 18.02.16.
    1. Quiet and comfortable atmosphere where you can browse without interruption. 2. A well selected and wide range of books. But the added pleasure is that the book seller really knows his stock and may introduce items you might otherwise have missed. - Sally Godwin-Austen 27.02.16.
    Serendipity brought me here as I fondly remember Prof. Mepham's shop in Lincoln. Seek out Bull Yard and browse, you will be well rewarded. - Colin G. Thornton 04.03.16.
    This is a literary oasis located in a quiet lane close to the Minster. It is small but well organised with a catholic selection of books with something to please almost everyone! The owner is knowledgeable and helpful but also willing to leave browsers alone. - Peter Donaldson 02.04.16.
    Small shop but every space well filled and no filler. Organised and a pleasure to browse. Excellent stock, mostly non-fiction. Friendly chap running it who will leave you alone or chat depending on your preference. Great prices. WAD. - Ian Ellis 22.07.17.
    Moved to present location in April. - TBG 06.04.19.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsI visited Oxfam Beeston yesterday found it very disappointing, not a lot of books and anything of any interest was very over priced. - Krissie 20.10.11.
    Disappointing even by Oxfam standards - for a City it is distinctly poor. Lots of academic books from the students. - Norman Davies 13.11.17.

    Packed charity bookshop in a little shopping precinct on the south side of Newark. Friendly chap claimed they had 40,000 books, but I'd estimate 6-8,000 on the shelves. Older hardbacks £2, everything else £1. No wildly collectible rarities, but great for cheapies. - Tallis 03.09.19.
