Are these books new or second-hand?

We offer new, second-hand and rare books, such as special editions. In each book listing, the section labeled 'Condition' indicates whether a book is new or second-hand. We use four categories to determine condition: new, very good, good, and fair. See more about our grading system here. A big part of our mission is to give pre-loved books a new life. We believe offering different conditions means more people have an opportunity to read!

Are these all English books?

Yes! We are an English bookstore. We support internationals, billingual families, and anyone reading in English. Our collection offers a variety of texts for all ages, from early concept books about shapes and colors, all the way to classic tales and novels. We are happy to offer guidance to find the perfect books for your needs.

What if the book I want to buy is sold out?

We update our inventory constantle, so we may have another copy available soon! Send us an email or fill in the Request a Book form to let us know what you're looking for, and we can check our stock for you.

Where do you ship to?

We ship anywhere within the EU. Our rates are €4,95 within the Netherlands and €9,95 within the EU. Save on shipping by choosing in-store pickup! We’ll set aside your order and look forward to meeting you when you stop by.

If you are an English bookshop, why don't you ship to the UK?

We are a small business, and as much as we wish we could support our customers overseas, due to high import duties we can't offer shipping to the UK.

Can I pick up my order in store?

Yes! Picking up orders in store is always a smart idea, as it reduces shipping costs and CO² emissions. Just select 'in-store pickup' while checking out.

How soon will my order be shipped?

All orders received by 3PM will ship the same day. (Exceptions are made for extra large orders, which we aim to ship by the following business day.) All orders made after 3PM will ship by the following business day.

Where can I sign up for Storytime? Is it for all ages?

Everyone is welcome at Storytime! Email us at and let us know your child's name and age so we can select best-fit stories for our audience.

Can I sell my book or artwork in your store?

We are always open to working with creatives! We want to be a place for writers and artists to show and sell their work and give them an audience. Send us an email with a bit about yourself and what you make. Please keep in mind that not everything is suitable for our store, and we have to make a selection of the works.
