On Thursday 13th December we had the complete and utter joy of having a busy bookshop day with a lunch with David Mitchell (the comedian) and a 13th birthday party in the evening. We also had the pleasure of having a book launch with Clare Mackintosh as part of our celebrations.
Here are a few of our favourite moments from the day.

With the ‘C’ word just around the corner, we thought we’d share that we have some great signed books in the shop at the moment – perfect gifts for the literary lover in your life.
Robert Macfarlane, Jessie Burton, Lenny Henry and Jackie Morris to name a few. Stop by the bookshop to see what we have in store while stocks last.
Its been 10 years since we started our book club at Jaffé & Neale Chipping Norton. The group is thriving and meet on the first Wednesday of every month to discuss the latest literary offerings.

Thanks to one of our regular book club attendees, Nigel Surman; who has kindly been keeping a list of all our book club picks since 2009 which you can read below. Thanks Nigel!
