We recommend buying books from physical local books stores to support the high street and local economy. If you do wish to buy online, especially eBooks, we have links to lots of books by Norfolk writers on Amazon. Buying this way supports NorfolkPlaces. Another way to support NorfolkPlaces would be to buy us a virtual cuppa.
