Enjoy some quiet time at CUP Bookshop




With the NHS now issuing book subscriptions - Google ‘Reading Well’ - it is a truth universally acknowledged that reading is good for your health.

However, recent reports, notably from The Reading Agency, show people are finding it ever-harder to set aside time to read solely for reading’s sake.

And that’s where the Quiet Evenings, hosted on a mid-month Wednesday at Cambridge University Press Bookshop, come in.

Billed as “an hour or so in a bookish surrounding to read, write or think”, free tea and coffee are provided and visitors are welcome either to tuck into the shop’s titles or BYOB (Bring Your Own Book). With plentiful comfy chairs and cosy corners, a soundtrack of soothing classical music, and iconic views outside the window - the shop looks out at King’s and Senate House - it’s an oasis of calm in our crazy world.

Call into the shop, on the corner of Cambridge’s Trinity Street, to find out more.
