Coronavirus Operations

Although our physical shop is now closed due to the Coronavirus lockdown, we are doing our best to keep our customers supplied with books! If you are local you can call us on 01903 812062 to place your order and make payment, we are still making deliveries to the local area, can post further afield, or if you are still able to go out, we will have a collection box on the side porch where you can pick up your order. Alternatively, you can place an order via email to info@steyningbookshop.co.uk and we will call later to take payment. Very soon we hope to have our best-selling books uploaded to this website so you can also order and pay online for a limited selection of books. Also, do follow us on Facebook / Instagram to hear news and updates about hot-off-the-press titles!

Love from The Steyning Bookshop Team!

Julia Donaldson Signed Books
We are still offering our usual service of posting out signed Julia Donaldson books nationwide. For the month of April, Julia will be offering personal dedications on all copies of her new book ‘What the Ladybird Heard at the Seaside’ which is officially released on April 4th. Orders may take longer than usual to process as we are operating a pared-down staffing schedule, but you should receive your books within 7 – 9 days.
We thank all our loyal customers for showing their support and continuing to shop with us, albeit virtually, at this difficult time.
Stay Safe and see you on the other side!
