Welcome to the Yellow-Lighted Bookshop’s online shop. Thanks for dropping by.

Pretty much all the books that are in our shops are available online – and if not, we can order them in. You can also order selections of cards. ‘Click and collect’ works from our shops in Nailsworth and Tetbury, and from Slad’s Woolpack Inn – or we can deliver/post (1st class). Don’t forget to let us know where you would like to collect your books from!

The blog pages to the right (under ‘recent posts’) feature what’s on our tables right now.

The stock listed in the online shop is what our computerised stock system thinks we have in stock. It’s not wholly accurate, but gives you a fair idea of what’s on the shelves today.

Book ordering:

Although the situation is improving, the delivery of books may take longer than you might expect. We post books first class, but they can still take several days. Where we can, we deliver locally ourselves, or encourage you to use our (free) click and collect service. We will get your orders to you as soon as possible. As always we can get hold of pretty much anything – if you’re patient enough. Most publishers are still sending books out – but special orders can take up to three weeks. Please bear with us.

If you cannot find the book you are looking for you can;

  1. You can fill out the form in the shop drop down menu called CONTACT US – BOOK ORDERS.
  2. Or email us at ylbtetbury@me.com.

We currently take online payment via PayPal or bank transfer, or you can email your order direct to us at ylbtetbury@me.com if you prefer. You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay us – you can just enter your card details.

We appreciate all of your support and can’t wait to see you all soon!

Our whole team – Helen, Louise, Sarah, Kim, Alex, Emilia, Gabriel, Alf, and the occasional helper out (Hereward), look forward to welcoming everyone back to the shops as soon as possible. But in the meantime, buying your books from us online is a great way to support us and help us carry on. Thanks.

      1. Actually, that’s a great question. Watch this space.

        Your order should be dispatched on Monday, btw.


  1. Excellent news! I love your friendly, independent book shop. You always have an interesting selection of books and I find so many books just by browsing there. I hope you will be able to do some mini-reviews on your online site to encourage us to read books we weren’t originally planning to purchase.

  2. Far better to buy from you (in these circumstances) than further enriching Jeff Bezos. I’m thinking about ‘Dark, Salt, Clear’

  3. Well done, keep up the good work. The yellow light is a beacon of hope in this weird time and frankly you can never have too many books 🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment. We’re working on making it a bit easier for customers to ask about things that we don’t actually have on the shelves. You should be able to find the ‘Shop – click here for books tab’ – and there’s an email form on the drop down menu. Or just email us at ylbtetbury@me.com.

      And we should be able to get that by the middle of the week!

  4. So happy you are now online as I would much prefer to buy books from you!
    Can you get a copy on Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell ?

    1. Morning! Yes, we have Hamnet in the shop, and can post/deliver tomorrow. Just search for the book in the search field, add it to the cart and then head to the checkout. Get in touch if you have any problems. Thank you!

    1. Hello Beth,

      Please could you email your order to us (online@ylbooks.co.uk )? Unfortunately, we are not set up to use the old tokens on our website at this time – this is something I will be looking into soon.


    1. Hello Georgia,

      DNRO means Do Not Reduce Order – Sorry this tag is still on some of our stock, I’m slowly working my way through and changing details as I go.

      Thanks and best wishes,

    1. Hello Rachel,

      I have put a post up about our new opening hours and some of the safety precautions we are taking. We look forward to seeing you soon.

      Best wises,
