Dear Typewrongers,

We're very glad to be open once again! As you can see from the blackboard featured we are trying to keep everyone safe by capping the number of people in the shop at 3 at any given time, and face masks and hand sanitiser are compulsory with no exceptions*. We are going to continue offering the following services for the foreseeable future to help keep everyone safe and to offer alternatives to shopping in person if need be. For any and all enquiries email

We are continuing to offer you the option of booking a half hour of private browsing in the shop, email us to arrange a time. Typically we try to keep these slots on weekdays between 7pm and 9pm. When you book a browse you get the shop to yourself, though customers might pick up orders from the door.

Email us to order books! We can get you pretty much anything currently in print delivered to your door or you can pick up from store!

to Edinburgh residents. We've offered this all through lockdown, and will continue to do so until stage 4 at least. Our deliveries go out once a week by local cycle courier Farr Out Deliveries so you needn't worry about your carbon footprint!

You can now collect your books from the store 11am-9pm Tuesday-Sunday. Previously we were doing this at the door, though now we're open for browsing you can come into the shop. If you'd rather stay outside, just call out through the open door or knock on the glass and we'll come and wranlge things for you!

For £3.10 you can have any books stamped, giftwrapped including origami animal, bookmark and personalised note sent to anyone you like. This service is FREE if you pick up from the shop!

Call 0131 556 5897 any time between 11am and 9pm Tuesday to Sunday for advice and recommendations as to what you should be reading next! We are also happy to give recommendations via email and can arrange Skype dates if you just fancy a chat.

Most notably our Open Mic Night hosted on our new YouTube channel.
* We are aware that for a variety of reasons there are some people who simply cannot wear a mask, however as browsing the shop in person, though pleasant, is not essential, we ask those in this position to use the various services we have laid on as alternatives. We have a number of customers for whom contracting this virus would seriously endanger their lives and have chosen to privilege their safety over your browsing. We hope you agree this is sensible.
