'Hosting a regular programme of author talks, book signings and themed events is an important and exciting part of what we do. We work hard to bring an exciting mix of bestselling authors and some of the best new writers to Oswestry. Booka prides itself on creating an "event experience" for both audience and author. As well as the bookshop we make use of a number of outside venues for our larger events.'

'Linghams bookshop has a long history on the Wirral and is a real asset to the local community ... We stock a wide range of books with many titles on display. If there is a title you would like to order we can generally get customer orders within 24 hours, it’s not unusual for a book to be ordered at 4:30pm and be available by 10am the next morning. Books can be ordered over the phone or online ... Linghams host regular events with a variety of international bestselling authors. Some of our events are based online but many are held in our Heswall bookshop.'

'Opened in 2003 by the ​London Review of Books in the heart of Bloomsbury, just a Rosetta Stone’s throw from the British Museum, the London Review Bookshop has now established itself as an essential part of the capital’s cultural life, a place for people who love books to meet, talk, drink excellent tea and coffee, consume delicious food from the cake shop, and of course, browse ... Twice a week or so, we turn our shop into a miniature auditorium and sometimes a cinema in which authors talk about and read from their work, meet their readers, show films and engage in lively debate about literature, history, politics and everything in between.'

'Waterstones began in 1982 under the aegis of its founder, Tim Waterstone. Over the decades that have followed, we have grown to become an icon of the British cultural landscape, employing over 3000 superb booksellers across over 280 bookshops. As the last surviving national bookshop chain, under the helmsmanship of Managing Director James Daunt, we are proud to have fought off the perceived threat of e-readers and online competition to begin a programme of active expansion ... Working closely with our bookshops are our efforts online, where at Waterstones.com we are working to bring the very essence of Waterstones to every home and smartphone in Britain.'
