Waterstones

Waterstones Dorchester gives a warm welcome to all who love books and beautiful things.

Inside their shop you will walk through rooms to inspire your reading choice and your practical needs. Downstairs you'll find the very latest and bestselling Fiction and Crime, and there is also a wonderful array of Gifts and Stationery for you to choose from. At the downstairs counter you can pick up or place book orders. Graphic Novels and Science Fiction will lead you to great Teen Fiction.

A warm and lively Children's section is the home of books they will love all our lives, as well as being a space for fun and creative events, with regular Story Times and Book Clubs.

Upstairs they have a world of Travel, History, Art and Cookery as well as Music, Biography, Religion and Health. It’s also a calm and quiet place to relax and choose Science or Politics books. Whatever your need, their very knowledgeable booksellers are always here to help.

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
