The Book House is a unique experience. If you haven’t been in then take the chance the next time you are in Thame

 Brian, Luise and the team work hard with all the publishers to ensure a great selection of adult and children’s books. If it can be got, they will get it for you.

Every independent book shop in the country is finding its market squeezed by internet shopping and large multiples so join in and ‘keep books real’
