The British Book Awards named Bookmark the independent bookshop of the year in 2001 and regional winner in 2007 and 2008. It has around 20,000 new titles on its shelves, with a strong children's section and some out-of-print local titles. A free secondhand search usually turns up positive results within two weeks. Lincolnshire writer Margaret Dickinson visits the shop with her new title each year, while Alan Titchmarsh, Kate Adie, Bill Turnbull, Rick Wakeman and Simon King have all held readings. The shop also sells gifts, including handmade wooden boxes and fragrance lamps. Its cafe serves locally sourced, homemade food, including a wonderful variety of cheesecakes.
