Our Cornwall BookBubble Bookcase

£45.00

Our bundles of books come in threes. Perfect for big readers or buying for a group. If you’re a really voracious bookworm and are struggling to prune your selection down to three, then please add two separate bundles. If it’s just the one book you’re after, then hop over to our ‘One for the Weekend’ bookcase for the same destination. Whichever option you choose, your books will be dispatched in one of our gorgeous navy bags with an equally gorgeous (and handy) bookmark.

Oh, and our bundles come with free second class P & P.
