Palas Print is an independent bookshop located within Caernarfon's town walls selling English and Welsh language books from Wales and the World.

Top 10 September

The September Top 10 reflects the events which were held during the month to celebrate the shop's 20th anniversary. An event was held with authors of five of the books on this list. Sgen I'm Syniad and Llyfr Lliwio Pel-Troed Cymru are two brand new books, which have received a lot of timely attention, . I'm really looking forward to reading Sken I'm Syniad, and the Football Coloring Book is suitable for anyone who enjoys colouring, or enjoys football, or both! Pridd is a very special novel, and many come to buy it on the recommendation of someone who has already read it. Mori won the top prize for Book of the Year 2022, which has sparked renewed interest in this novel from 2021, and Welsh (Plural) is a special collection of essays about the future of Wales by various writers.
