New for 2020


For well over twenty-five years we have been making great literature available at a price that all can afford. It all began back in 1992 when we created the £1 classic paperback and ever since then we have stuck to one simple principle: to produce the best quality books that we can at the lowest possible price.
    Our collection of around 270 classic titles for adults and children still only cost £2.50, and we think the quality of our current editions is the best they have ever been. So whether you are a student or a school on a limited budget or a just a lover of great literature, then you're in the right place. So go ahead and treat yourself to a masterpiece for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

    And our Classics are only part of the story. Our World Literature series encompasses major works of philosophy, and more, from around the world, our Poetry series covers all of the major British, Irish and American writers and our Mystery & Supernatural series offers chilling ghost stories and intriguing mysteries. Add to that our bumper Special Editions and our beautiful hardback Library Collection and Collector's Editions (which make great presents) and we can truly say that with our collection of well over 400 titles we offer something for everyone.

    So go ahead and have a look around - we hope you enjoy your visit.



Another week, another adaptation of a classic. With The Call of the Wild being released in cinemas this week, David Stuart Davies looks at Jack London's popular classic. Read his blog here

About the bookThe Call of the Wild is a world famous animal story. Set in Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1890s, it is about Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a St Bernard and a Scottish Collie. Stolen from his pampered life on a Californian estate and shipped to the Klondike to work as a sledge dog, he triumphs over his circumstances and becomes the leader of a wolf pack. The story records the 'decivilisation' of Buck as he answers 'the call of the wild', an inherent memory of primeval origins to which he instinctively responds.
