Read Holmfirth


Welcome to our beautiful bookshop in Holmfirth! We have dedicated rooms for both adult and children’s books and have a wide range to choose from; fiction to crime, walking to cycling and mindfulness to maps. We also have a great range of literary gifts and stationery – come and take a look!

Welcome to the Read. Holmfirth family bookshop! It has been our dream for a very long time to own our own bookshop and so, after a spur of the moment decision to view some retail units at the end of 2018, here we are! We feel incredibly lucky to live and work in such a vibrant and friendly town and more than anything, we want our bookshop to be a central part of the community; from working with schools and young people, to hosting a wide range of events, book clubs and writing clubs.

We want our shop to be welcoming, friendly and somewhere that you feel comfortable to come and spend time away from the stresses of everyday life. Children are very welcome in our shop and we promise not to growl at them for touching the books! We have three young children of our own, who you will see in the shop from time to time, and we know how much we value bookshops which cater for and are welcoming to children. We have toys, games and of course lots of books in our dedicated children’s room so that hopefully you might be able to have a few minutes to yourself to browse the shelves.

The Read. Family includes a wonderful team of staff who are incredibly knowledgeable about a ridiculously wide range of books! There is very little between us that we don’t know; we can give you the space and time to browse or we can help you choose your next title, you decide. We have several very comfortable armchairs for you to sit in whilst you admire the beauty (and that lovely new smell!) of the books on our shelves.

We carefully choose books in all categories and genres to enrich the lives of our customers, from award-winning literary fiction, to graphic novels and film titles to a selection of books about the natural world, biographies and even books or maps for the many cyclists which pass through Holmfirth. If you don’t find what you are looking for on our shelves, we can order it for next day delivery to the shop.

From the moment we started telling people that we were opening a bookshop, we have had nothing but support from the lovely people of Holmfirth and beyond. We hope you like what we’ve created and we can’t wait for you to visit us.
