Welcome to Forum Books, who can be found at The Chapel, Marketplace, Corbridge.

Forum Books is an award winning independent bookshop situated in the heart of Northumberland.

Eclectic, original and endlessly enthusiastic about the printed word, we stock a hand-picked and eye-popping range of beautiful books and host an eclectic range of author events. We’re staffed by bibliophiles happy and eager to talk books and make informed recommendations.

We reckon Morrissey’s line – that we’ve had carved into our shop’s counter top – shows where we’re coming from … ‘there’s more to life than books you know … but not much more.’

In short? We love books as much as you do. Come and say hello!

We asked all the bookshops to answer three Christmas questions:

1. What is your favourite Christmas book?
Just love, and read several times every festive season, ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’ by Dylan Thomas
“All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street ..”

2. What books should we look out for this December? Adult fiction, children’s fiction and non-fiction
