Clearance Sale Continues & Home Library Plans

Today we close our webstore The Home Library Online.  Temporarily.  😀

When I took the shopping cababilities off, I felt a pang of … er … I’m not sure there is a word for the feeling.  😦  The Home Library is so much a part of me.  Of our family.  We love that we live in a bookshop.  🙂  And we are going to miss that.

People ask repeatedly what we are going to do with the Home Library.  At various times and to different people, my story is different, because I still haven’t figured things out yet.  What I can say for sure is that we will be closed till March 2010.  We have to leave our current home by 15th March 2010 but it is starting to look like our new place won’t be ready in time for our move.  And when we do move, I’m not sure how much storage space our new but smaller home is going to have.  So I can’t say what form our business will take when we resume.


It’s been 4 weeks since we started the Home Library Clearance Sale and we have gone from 33 shelves’ worth to just 3 and a half!  Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support! 

There are about 200 titles left and all are still going at 20% discount off for paperback books and 30% discount for hardcover books unless otherwise specified. 

I have listed the titles here and as with the previous list, I will delete titles as and when they sell out.

So keep shopping off this list okay?  🙂
