Buy books this Christmas and support your local independent publisher!

Books are a lovely Christmas present – as well as being easy to wrap and easy to post, and we’d love you to buy a few Two Rivers Press books this season!

We’ve picked a few out which we think would make thoughtful and interesting gifts, but we’ve also set up a special 10% discount applicable to any book ordered via the website, so why not take a look? You can browse all our books on our complete catalogue page. Use the code TRPTIDINGS at the checkout. (I am quite pleased with that festive yet water-based pun!). The code will be valid until the end of December 2019, although we won’t be able to guarantee delivery before Christmas for orders placed after 15th December.

In celebration of our 25th birthday this year, we also have 25 of our books available with a 25% discount. Using the TRPTIDINGS coupon code will get you an additional 10% off, so it’s well worth a look at these books. See our sale page here.

Our gift suggestions to get you started…

The Book of Snow

Snow and love combine in this unique poetry collection, supported by Jessica Palmer’s arresting paper artistry and Sally James’ powerful black and white design. A book to fall in love with and be intrigued by, and the perfect Winter gift! £9.99


Cat Jeoffry

Cat Jeoffry is a self-contained passage from Christopher Smart’s eccentric 18th century masterpiece Jubilate Agno (Rejoice in the Lamb) and the most famous piece of poetry ever written about a cat. It brims over with prankish playfulness. Quirky, realistic, affectionate, it is at the same time a remarkable spiritual meditation. This edition contains a commentary and notes by Tom Woodman and Peter Hay’s characteristic black and white illustrations rampage through the book. £7.95

Reading’s Bayeux Tapestry

Reading Museum houses a full-size replica of the Bayeux Tapestry, telling the story in pictures of William the Conqueror’s invasion of England in 1066. This book reproduces each embroidered section in full colour, accompanied by vividly written descriptions for each part of the story, and information about the tapestry itself. If you can’t visit the museum to see the tapestry, or if you want to peruse the imagery and text in depth, this book is ideal! £14.99

The Reading Quiz Book

How well do you know Reading?

This witty and entertaining book will test your knowledge and develop your acquaintance with the hidden corners, the events and incidents of this much-maligned town. Includes 110 questions and 20 photos of places to identify. £5.99 (a bargain!)
