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.

Poems this week are The Voice by Thomas Hardy & On An Unsociable Family By Elizabeth Hands

The Voice by Thomas Hardy

Woman much missed, how you call to me, call to me,
Saying that now you are not as you were
When you had changed from the one who was all to me,
But as at first, when our day was fair.

Can it be you that I hear? Let me view you, then,
Standing as when I drew near to the town
Where you would wait for me: yes, as I knew you then,
Even to the original air-blue gown!

Or is it only the breeze, in its listlessness
Travelling across the wet mead to me here,
You being ever dissolved to wan wistlessness,
Heard no more again far or near?

Thus I; faltering forward,
Leaves around me falling,
Wind oozing thin through the thorn from norward,
And the woman calling.

On An Unsociable Family By Elizabeth Hands

O what a strange parcel of creatures are we,
Scarce ever to quarrel, or even agree;
We all are alone, though at home altogether,
Except to the fire constrained by the weather;
Then one says, ‘’Tis cold’, which we all of us know,
And with unanimity answer, ‘’Tis so’:
With shrugs and with shivers all look at the fire,
And shuffle ourselves and our chairs a bit nigher;
Then quickly, preceded by silence profound,
A yawn epidemical catches around:
Like social companions we never fall out,
Nor ever care what one another’s about;
To comfort each other is never our plan,
For to please ourselves, truly, is more than we can.

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.”
