It’s always exciting to see bookshops bucking the trend, and expanding rather than contracting. On that note, we are pleased that Evangelical Bookshop have taken a lease for shop space on North Bank Street, Edinburgh to start a new venture, ‘Mound Books’. Although they are using the old Free Church Bookshop space, this new bookshop is independent of the Free Church of Scotland. If you are in the centre of Edinburgh and are keen to browse, we would encourage you to pop in. And look out for their advertising in the coming weeks.
Free Church Books continues to run our own bookshop online at thefree.church/shop. Run in partnership with 10ofthose, a percentage of the sales from this bookshop comes straight back to the Free Church, to support its work. It also offers excellent prices, and does some fantastic bulk buy deals for small groups, churches and conferences.
So there you have it. Two bookshops are better than one!
