Reading Lists for 2015-2016
We are beginning to collect and validate recommended texts for purchase for the new academic year. This information is updated to an online database that is promoted to students. Orders are placed in August for the start of the new term. We can obtain titles very quickly, within 24/48 hours, but obviously publishers do go out of stock and books published overseas can take longer. Please let us know which essential titles you would like us to stock by email - and we will do the rest.
The Bookshop is closed from Monday 27 July 2015 for our annual stock-take, part of the University's financial year-end procedure. We re-open Monday 3 August 2015. Customer orders received during this time will be placed to ensure delivery is as soon as possible when we re-open. All departmental book orders for internal recharge must be received by Monday 13 July 2015.
We're open throughout the year whatever your book requirements, from the moment you consider Christ Church as an undergraduate to post-graduate studies - we're here for you.
Over 16,000 books were sold last year supporting academic research and study across the University. In fact, with over half a million general and academic titles available for collection the following day - there's not much we can't do. It's not just the set texts. We stock a wide range of books supporting your chosen subject area, from Christopher Robin to Christopher Hitchens we can source any book currently in print.
Any title not available for next day is usually supplied within 3 to 7 days. And practically all books are automatically discounted by 10% with greater savings available on core textbook bundles and newly-published titles. Just ask for a Price-Check at the counter. We also have a wide range of sale titles listed online.
Publications from Canterbury Christ Church University academic staff are listed on our website and can be found in stock in the Bookshop. Click on the jacket images on this page for more information. From Irish History to African Theatre, there is a wide range of subjects currently under research. For journal articles please search the CReaTE repository

Augustine House Vending Machine
Following requests from library users, a vending machine is now located in Augustine House. It is just past the Reception area. The machine vends an essential selection of basic stationery and digital media items. We've added value-packs to keep costs as low as possible.
A far wider selection of stationery is available from the bookshop. We also stock stamps, greeting cards as well as a wide range of basic stationery requirements such as memory sticks; and university-branded clothing, all fair-trade, and with sweatshirts from only £18.99.
