Choice of April: The Bookshop That Floated Away 

The Bookshop That Floated Away, Paperback book

"Most people want to work in a bookshop and some people want to own one, but I’m not sure how many want to own a bookshop that floats! However reading Sarah’s tale of why and how she came to start a bookshop on a boat will inspire everyone. There are tales of being banned from docks and travelling out to sea, and all through the tale is her determination to survive."

Why shop at is where the two worlds of online purchasing and high street shopping collide. You love the ease and luxury of shopping online, but you don't want to see the bricks and mortar shops on the high street disappear. With hive, every time you make a purchase you’re supporting your local independent shop as well, just by continuing to do what you love - buying your books, eBooks, music and movies online.

Whenever you buy something at hive, big or small, we’ll share a percentage of the sale with your nominated favourite or local bookshop.  So whilst you’re buying from us, your local bookshop will benefit from your online shopping too. Happy days!
