Congratulations to Kenilworth Books in Warwickshire, who are our Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for September.

 

Our Caboodle Bookshop of the Month for September is Kenilworth Books in Warwickshire! They have been an independent bookshop for nearly 50 years and are located in the historic town of Kenilworth.

They have a large Children's section and plenty of fiction and non-fiction books for adults, not to mention a wide variety of signed editions for you to peruse when you visit. 

Judy and the team have been sent a luxury food and white wine hamper to celebrate – congratulations to everyone at Kenilworth Books!

We love organising author events, running our book group and collaborating with local Art and Literary festivals. Making sure as many people as possible know about all these lovely things is really important.
