Established in 2019, Wyre Forest Books is an independent bookshop in the historic riverside town of Bewdley in Worcestershire.
The book shop is owned and run by Calne and Nick, business partners and friends. Nick is the principal bookseller and the person you will see behind the counter most days, and Calne is responsible for the children’s books, art and window display.
We stock new books, art & writing materials, music, Whittard’s teas & hot chocolate, book related soft toys and a beautiful range of cards.
As well as having the most exciting new fiction and non-fiction releases in both hardback and paperback, we also try to stock books that we think will be of interest to our customers with new titles coming in weekly. We take great pride in researching and carefully choosing books with the best reviews on subjects that you didn’t even realise you were interested in, as well as books in the media spotlight or being talked about on blogs and forums. We listen carefully to our customers to pick out books that we think they will love and are more than happy to make recommendations.
We also have a fantastic children’s selection for all ages, from Beatrix Potter to Julia Donaldson and JK Rowling to David Walliams. Our teen/young adult section is growing all the time with new titles appearing every week.
Accelerated Reading: Where relevant we have highlighted the Interest Level (IL) and Book Level (BL) for relevant books in our catalogue.
We are very proud of our art & craft book selection. We have some fantastic books from specialist art & craft publisher Search Press on watercolour, acrylic and oil painting techniques along with beginner’s guides to sketching and painting and a super range of crafting books.
Bewdley is a very musical town, so we are pleased to stock sheet music and instructional guides for piano, guitar & ukulele and can order in music for any instrument, musical or specific score. Please ask us for more information about our music ordering service, including instruments.
Art, craft & writing materials
We stock a range of papers for writing, sketching and painting along with brushes, coloured & graphite pencils, Parker pens and other accessories.
We stock a range of delicious Whittard’s products including their sumptuous hot chocolate and refreshing black and green teas. On selected days we serve their teas and hot chocolate along with freshly ground Colombian coffee.
Toys, gifts and cards
To complement our children’s books, we have some associated soft toys including Spot the Dog, Paddington, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Tiger Who Came To Tea and lots more. We have a selection of beautiful cards, blank for any occasion, along with children’s age cards for ages 1 to 6.
