Bookshop Description: (Est. 1981)

We are an established independent bookshop in Devizes, situated in a beautiful listed Georgian building. We are proud to have been chosen best independent shop in the Devizes Constituency for 2014. We carry a good range of new books, including titles of local interest, and boast a large children's book room. Our map selection includes both Michelin & Ordnance Survey and we have had our own "Devizes Walking Map" printed with Devizes at the centre. We are able to order any book not in stock, many delivered next day and also undertake "Out of Print" book searches. We are able to send books to any location in the world! Above the bookshop is an art gallery, with work by local artists, where we hold monthly literary evenings and occasional literary suppers. All of us at Devizes Books hope you are keeping well & we would just like to say a huge thank you for all the wonderful messages of support and for the orders which we are fulfilling, one way or another! If we can help with delivery of anything else (within reason) we are willing to help if at all possible! In case you are not aware there is a Devizes Covid-19 support group, amongst other things they do, they are able to facilitate picking up and delivery of prescriptions. Contact them on 01380 722160 Devizes Books are open again for browsing, just asking that customers adhere to our request that they should wear the gloves we provide. As before we are still able to take orders by phone, email, social media & notes shoved through the door, which can be sent directly to you by one our suppliers, or supplied from stock and delivered by post, or dog walker if local. Our stock obviously includes book tokens (ours & national), cds, vinyl, toys, cards, wrapping paper or anything in the gallery (subject to how on earth we get one of Colin’s paintings to you...) If you have had to self isolate or you feel unable to visit Devizes, and are in dire need of a good book, we urge you to take advantage of this service, books can be sent out by post and we will not be charging for the postage during this difficult period.

Poems this week are Leisure by W.H. Davies & Love (III) By George Herbert

Leisure by W.H. Davies

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows:

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Love (III) By George Herbert

Love bade me welcome. Yet my soul drew back
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lacked any thing.

A guest, I answered, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look on thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?

Truth Lord, but I have marred them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:
So I did sit and eat.

The Toy Tree is joining forces with Devizes Books!
A prime example of small independent businesses helping each other out when trouble strikes. The Toy Tree, which specialises in handmade wooden toys, has closed at Old Swan Yard, after a combination of family commitments and competition from the internet .
But the reaction from their customers was a surprise. “People told me I couldn’t close so I looked around for other options.”
Devizes Books in Sidmouth Street, came to the rescue and are delighted to be able to host The Toy Tree. “I think this is a good example of small businesses supporting each other.”
