Spalding Bookshop

Shop Details

Truly unique

Originally established in 1975 as a clothing store, our Sue Ryder Spalding Bookshop has been open since 2005 and offers the truly unique experience as being Sue Ryder’s only dedicated book and music shop.

Located in ‘The Crescent’, we are easy to find, being just a ten-minute walk away from both the train and bus stations, and opposite an award-winning independent book store – making this part of town a haven for book lovers.

Bibliophiles and browsers welcome

Covering a wide variety of topics and tastes, bibliophiles and browsers are welcome to explore our extensive selection of books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records and much, much more! We cater for all ages, dividing our stock into clearly labelled categories, and staff is always on hand to help you find whatever you are looking for.

Customer request service: we’ll spot it

From bargain books at 3 for £1, to rare items worth hundreds of pounds, we have something to suit all budgets. Even if you can't find what you are looking for on your first visit, we offer a customer request service and try to spot items of interest to you as donations come in daily.

So don't delay, pop in today and start the next chapter in your life. It could be a real page-turner!
