Blackwell University Bookshop is Manchester's leading academic bookshop.

On our ground floor, we stock cult fiction, classic literature, graphic novels, cookery and craft books, along with bestsellers and new titles. Our first floor is dedicated to history, politics, medical books, sciences and languages. Our second floor are our business and management books, alongside economics and an extensive law section.

Our main business, though, is stocking academic books. We stock text books for the Manchester universities, as well as HSE/TSO publications. We also do Ordnance Survey mapping.

Our booksellers are dedicated subject specialists, Lady Gaga fans, badminton pros, rock stars and rabbit-watchers (not necessarily in that order). Pop in now to our Oxford Road shop (find us here), ring 0161 274 3331 or email us: manchester [at] blackwell.co.uk.

This website is maintained by the bookshop's deputy manager and Manchester lit slouch Fat Roland. READER! READ FASTER! is named after Driver Drive Faster, a Chorltonite rock combo who regularly loan out their keyboardist to Blackwell's in a massive football-type transfer deal.
