A warm welcome to Book-ish, your friendly independent bookshop, located in Crickhowell, a pretty town 5 miles from Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Our philosophy is simple, we want to connect people to books, help children to develop a life long love of reading and encourage imaginative play. We offer a friendly, quality service and are happy to talk about books all day long....you just try and stop us!

Owned by Emma & Andrew Corfield-Walters, Book-ish offers a professional service, both in store at 23 High Street, Crickhowell and here online.

After the totally uncivilised behaviour that Black Friday provokes, come and calm your frayed nerves and nurse your bruised shins and elbows at your local independent Bookshop.

Between 2pm and 4pm we shall encourage our customers to peruse the shelves whilst enjoying a glass of prosecco and the odd canape. All this and 10% off EVERYTHING will send you off relaxed, refreshed and feeling far more civilised. 

No pushing and shoving, no souless online auctions - lots and lots of books and the VIP treatment from us here at Bookish.

Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labelled "This could change your life."
