Another award-winning chapter for the treasured Weedon Bookstore

Celebrations take place at a family business in Weedon which has won a Muddy Stiletto Award for the second year in a row.

The Reading Tree, based at The Depot, has been voted the best bookstore in Northamptonshire.

Owner Michelle Jay said: “Muddy Stilettos’ philosophy is to celebrate and support the most unique, interesting and brilliant local businesses. We were up against some tough competition, including some very long-established brilliant bookstores, so I’m so glad we won!

“Thank you so much to all of you who have supported us on our journey. We are a small family business, and in the age of Amazon dominance, I am so honored that so many of you have chosen to support us.

The Reading Tree is a new favorite bookstore based in the beautiful country setting of The Depot.

It stocks thousands of new and used books – but there’s something pretty special about the price. All new titles are £2.50 regardless of RRP.

Michelle added: “The business has grown tremendously – mainly through word of mouth – and we see the same faces on a regular basis which is absolutely wonderful.

“We run events when we can, like a preschool story hour on Monday mornings and an after-school happy hour where kids can pick up a book, cake and milkshake for £5. We also organize events during school holidays, and we are looking to start a book club in the spring.”
