In previous 365 posts we’ve looked at Norwich’s strong literary links, including Julian of Norwich and Noirwich Crime Writing Festival, but today we’re taking a closer look at books in Norfolk through the variety of fantastic book shops in the county.
Norfolk Children’s Book Centre (pictured) in Alby has been established for over 30 years, and its team of ex-teachers, librarians and book lovers select the best children’s literature for their customers.
Avid naturalists favour the Crabpot Bookshop in Cley. which stocks a wide range of books about the natural world as well of thousands of secondhand books, including classics and contemporary literature.
Kett’s Books in Wymondham is quite a unique find. It’s a community-ran, not-for-profit bookseller, which was saved from closure by a group of enthusiastic volunteers for the benefit of the whole town. Staff get to know their core customers, and offer recommendations based upon previous purchases.
This is just three highlights in a county that’s a book-lovers paradise! Explore the county to your heart’s content with Visit Norwich.
