Blackwood Books sells over 300 books per week and takes in (via purchase or exchange) an equal or slightly larger number. The purpose of this page is to highlight areas in which we have added new stock and also to let potential customers know about titles and genres which we are seeking. This page is designed to be the most frequently updated of any on our site, and we will aim to update it monthly (or more frequently if we get in an exciting new collection or have an urgent requirement). The remainder of the page is divided into the two areas – NEW and NEEDED. At the bottom of each area is a date to indicate when it was last revised. If you have any questions about our more general stock or books needed, please use the box on the "Contact Us" page to make your enquiries.

Blackwood Books is open for business.

By now most of you have probably heard the very sad news of David's passing.  We would like to thank everyone for their support and sympathies during this difficult time.

We all know how much the shop mean't to David and how pleased that he would be to know that we are again open for business.  We look forward to seeing you in store.

Welcome to July!  At the end of June we took a full page ad in the local Messenger Paper and have gotten good results.  We have also just purchased a large collection of Asterix and Tintin comics as well as several Ompa-Pa comics by the authors of Asterix. We have over 50 new World War II books and just today obtained several Norman Lindsay books.
