Welcome to the Big Green Bookshop Online
+++ Update +++ Update +++ Update
Sausage Saturday has clearly taken Britain by storm. Queues have already started forming outside the shop, with punters eager to get their lips around a delicious juicy sausage or a caramelised carrot.
And who can blame them??
So, it's been decided that rather than let them freeze, we'd start our book offers a day early. Um, yes, that's right. That means we are getting all Black Fridaylicious too. 

So, from 10am on Friday November 27th, until 6pm on Sausage Saturday, we will be offering your ONE AND ONLY chance before Christmas to buy books at 3 for 2.

As is traditional with these things, the cheapest item is free, this doesn’t include Book Tokens or Vouchers, but it does include pretty much everything else. The offer is just for books that we have in the shop, so this is a brilliant chance for you to get ALL your Christmas shopping done in one massive go. 

Please take note;

Thee will be NO sausages in the shop on Friday. We're saving all those for SAUSAGE SATURDAY, about which you can read right here. 

(or if you prefer veg)....
Please join us this Saturday, where we will be celebrating it not being Black Friday, by having a day of tasty treats and awesome offers. 
We've joined forces with two local suppliers to offer something a little different, while you're browsing our shelves.
Firstly, let's talk sausages. 
Every Wednesday and Friday from about 3.30am, Mark White can be found at Smithfield & Billingsgate Markets, selection some of the most delicious and freshest meat and fish, straight from source.
He then shoots around London delivering his orders to lots of homes and offices. 
His website MARKYMARKET.COM gives more information about what mark has to offer, but as one of his customers I can safely say that he picks some incredible stuff!
Not only that, but he's been a huge supporter of the bookshop over the years. It was he who drove Simon to Calais to take the book donations to the Jungle Library. And whenever we need someone to help us do our larger deliveries, it's Mark who will volunteer his time to do this. 
So, on Saturday, we're going to be serving up a selection of sausages, supplied by Mark, for you to try whilst perusing our shelves. 
For those of you who prefer Veg, we''re also going to be serving up a selection of roasted, caramelised vegetables for you to try, courtesy of Rachel from CROP DROP
Now, Crop Drop is a local Veg Box scheme, where customers can pick up their bags of goodies at various drop off points around North London (one of these is The Big Green Bookshop btw). Their produce is all organic and locally sourced, so you can get the best seasonal yumminess every week. This week, I believe, there's going to be "Purple Haze Carrots"!

OK, so about these book offers....

We'll tell you about them nearer the time, but we think it'll be worth your while to make a trip to N22 this Saturday.

Or you could subscribe to our Children’s Book Club
Our Children’s Book Club works in exactly the same way as our adult one and we’ve enlisted some expert help to make sure we provide the most appropriate books for children of all ages. We’ve joined up with “Books for Keeps” to help us choose book for our kid’s book package. Books for Keeps are the UK’s leading independent children’s book magazine, reviewing over 1,000 children’s books each year. This is what they wrote in their first issue back in 1980.
‘We have assumed that you, our readership, are busy people committed to encouraging the reading habit amongst your children, not only in school but at home or on holiday too. Because there is so much available and so much new material being published, it is impossible to keep abreast of everything all the time. The thinking behind Books for Keeps is based therefore on the belief that book ideas, book opinion, book information and book news should be easy to digest, stimulating to read, and simple to select.’
The Book Club is a perfect gift for any book lovers out there – no matter what age.
There are 3 sizes of package, three months, six months and twelve months. Prices start at just £25 for children and £30 for adults.

  Welcome to The Big Green Bookshop, the award winning bookshop based in Wood Green, North London. We’re situated just off the High Road, a couple of minutes walk from Turnpike Lane tube station, on Brampton Park Road (an oasis of calm in the metropolitan madness).

We stock a great and varied range of books, which we individually hand pick for our customers, as well as stocking a wide selection of cards, bookmarks and other essentials. If you can’t decide what to get (the choice is sometimes too much), we sell our own vouchers too.

We have book groups for adults and children, which is open to everyone, and we also hold a staggering number of author signings and events for all ages. From Maisy Mouse to burlesque dancers, music legends and literary superstars, you can keep up with all the shenanigans on the website, or by signing up for our newsletter, just over there ------>

If we don’t have the book you’re looking for we can usually get it in within 48 hours, and you can now order online too, and we offer free delivery in the UK for orders over £5. You’ll also find special offers, signed books and all manner of delights here, so it’s definitely worth checking back every so often.

If the book you want is no longer available, we have an Out of Print Booksearch Service, which is totally free.
Details can be found here.

There’s so much more to tell you, but we’ll let you have a look around for yourself. Have fun and come and say hello next time you’re in the area. There’s usually a pot of coffee on the go, and we have a very comfy sofa.
