While Rare Birds Book Shop exists to champion women's writing, we are more than happy to order in any book you would like.

Absolutely! Apart from the odd exception, we can order any book that’s in print in the UK. Generally this will take 2-3 days to come in.

We will notify you when the book is in store.

Not currently, no. We do however have a small range of YA titles for teens.
