Bags of Books is an independent bookseller that has been supplying quality, inspiring books to schools all over the country for over 20 years.

On this site we have compiled our recommended books lists for schools on many different topics and themes. The lists are regularly added to and updated, ensuring you’re getting access to the most up-to-date and relevant texts for your classroom or library.

As well as saving teachers time and effort we also aim to save you money. We will endeavour to always offer the best discount available to ensure we are very competitively priced. It is usually better value to buy from us than through publishers or on-line.

Thanks so much for another year of great books!… We’ve particularly enjoyed the monthly book subscription service, which ensures we have all the hot new releases from the authors the children love!

For recommended reading on a wide variety of topics and themes, check out our Book Lists:

One way that teachers can inject some vitality into the school's reading areas, and create a stunning library that will inspire your pupils, is to sign up to one of our Books of the Month subscriptions.

For a flat fee we select a range of 10 books suitable across the primary year groups. We tailor the selections to your needs. So, if you’re a pre-prep, infant or junior school, or only want the new books for 1 or 2 specific year groups, you can let us know when you subscribe to this service.

Books are delivered to your school during the first week of the month. If you have specific delivery requirements just let us know.
You can spend your Pupil Premium Funding in two ways:

Buy new books for your library or classroom; you might want to choose books for a particular project or you would like to expand the “Reading for Pleasure” bookshelves – the choice is yours. You can browse our webpages for ideas or you can let us do the work to find great books for your needs.

“A Book of Their Own”; let us know a child’s name and year group and his reading preferences, and we will send the book gift wrapped to them, straight to their address or to the school.

Search for books by entering keywords, title or a specific ISBN.
