About Us

Hall of Books is run by Shaun and Sarah Sheppard from deepest rural Shropshire, United Kingdom. After long careers in the corporate world we started Hall of Books in 2011, combining our love of books and music with our professional skills of Graphic Design, Photography, Writing, Sales and Marketing.

We have over 8,000 items now listed online and we try to add new titles on a daily basis. We have not specialised in any particualr category or genre but offer an eclectic (perhaps eccentric!) selection that we hope appeals to a diversity of tastes and interests. All of the secondhand books and sheet music we sell are owned by us and are in stock. We personally acquire, check, describe, photograph, store, pick, pack and post every item we sell. 
We take customer service very seriously and do our best to describe our books accurately, including photographs of the actual book you will receive should you order, and to package them securely when they sell.

We ship throughout the UK, Europe and Internationally. Recent sales have included books and music to: The Falklands, Singapore, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Belgium, New Zealand, Switzerland, Sweden, Australia, Tasmania, Thailand, Slovakia, Slovenia, Denmark, Hong Kong, Cyprus, India, Croatia, South Africa, Israel, Japan, Estonia, Brazil, Malta, Canada, Australia, USA, Spain, Ireland, Greece, Iceland, Holland, Hungary, Luxembourg, Norway, Germany, Finland, Portugal, Italy, Spain, France, Taiwan, United Arab Amirates and China, as well as all parts of the United Kingdom.
We also have a small shop in Oswestry Indoor Market where we sell a wide selection of reasonably priced books and sheet music. The shop is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 9.00am and 3.30pm and there is ample parking on site. The shop is too small to hold our online stock but we are more than happy to bring any item into the shop for customers to have a look at, no obligation to buy! Just let us know what you'd like to see and we'll bring the item(s) into the Market for you.
