Books for Amnesty Newcastle

Temporary Closure Notice

To safeguard our staff and volunteers we have decided to close our Amnesty bookshops until further notice. I hope you will understand why we have made this decision and we look forward to seeing you in the shops again soon.
If you have any donations, please wait until the shop reopens to bring it along – when we will gratefully receive it as usual. Please do not leave donations outside the shop.
As soon as we're back on our feet and open you to come and browse all the wonderful books we have to offer, we'll let you know. Keep checking back and take care. 

Our Norwich Book Shop opened in August 2018 and is the newest in our group. Based on Unthank Road, it is within easy reach of the city centre, set on a shopping street in the Golden Triangle.

Our Newcastle shop has been serving the local community for over a decade. This peaceful oasis stocks high quality books from £1.50-£6.00.

Come along to browse and buy the best in:

  • Second hand books, both fiction and non-fiction
  • Children's books
  • Vinyl
  • Poetry
  • Foreign language fiction and non-fiction
  • Short stories
  • Biography
