Independent Bookshop Week 2017 @ CCB

Take a look at some of our highlights of IBW 2017 at Crediton Community Bookshop!


IBW kicked off on the final day of CredFest. Here are some local musicians busking outside and inside the shop:

Writer’s Desk

Throughout the week we’ve had our writer’s desk enticing customers to have a go typing a few words, reviews, a first line of a book, favourite line of a poem and any other random thoughts on our snazzy typewriter. Certainly easier with practice!

And a snippet from IBW Children’s Book Award winner:

Monster Hunt

Alongside the release date of Tom Fletcher’s ‘There’s a Monster in your Book’, we hosted a monster hunt in our shop. Dotted around the store were five monsters (each with their own facial expressions) for customers to find!

Blind Date with a Book

Not sure what you want to read? Fancy being inspired by an illustration? Look out for our Blind Date with a Book selection. With illustrations that give away just a little about the book, this is an exciting (and brave) way to choose your next title – go on, we dare you.
