The Bookcase has always tried to support local authors, and the Nottinghambooks website was set up in 2008 with this very much in mind. We hoped in this way we could advertise local books more widely, while providing an opportunity for people living further afield to buy online. We’ve certainly succeeded in this as we’ve sent books as far as Japan, Australia, USA and Canada as well as all over Britain.
The website features books written by Nottinghamshire authors and books about Nottinghamshire – the county, its towns, villages, sport, past-times, folklore, food, building, artists, transport and its history and, of course, books produced by our own publishing arm, Bookcase Editions. Our aim is to include everything in print that has a local connection. So if you know of anything we have missed, please let us know.
