A bookshop is not just a bookshop, it is a social hub.

We have just reached the regional shortlist (East England) for Independent Bookshop Of The Year Award. Can’t tell you how amazing it would be for us to receive this award, but first we need to win this round and that means we REALLY need your help.

Thank you so much

Harris and Harris Books is situated along the pretty high street in the strong and thriving town of Clare, Suffolk. The bookshop offers new and second hand books on two floors, with handmade pottery by Jean Knowles and a large collection of old motoring books which attracts regular motor enthusiasts from nearby villages to as far away as Australia.

With free gift wrapping, individually hand-picked stock, regular window displays (look out for Jok, the sleepy cat), friendly, knowledgeable and professional service, quick customer orders, and maybe a biscuit for visiting four-legged friends, Harris and Harris Books is the one-stop literary haven for readers of all ages.

We also offer a number of quality second hand titles which can be bought online via the below link :


 We look forward to welcoming you soon – Open daily Mon – Sat 10.00 – 17.30.
Other times by chance or appointment.
