Book Selections

Bookshop.org is a new comprehensive online book site dedicated to helping independent bookshops. We have put together some carefully chosen themed selections of books for the site and you can access them below. Click on the header to view the selection. Books can be ordered by emailing us@redlionbooks.co.uk or follow the link for online ordering through the bookshop.org checkout and we will still benefit. As well as browsing these lists you can search through all available UK titles and again, we will benefit from any books you choose to buy.

Leaving the house for exercise is allowed. Here is a wide ranging selection of books from the practical to the poetic that will inspire you to tread new paths,  all with one thing in common – the joy and satisfaction that comes from putting one foot in front of another.
