The Diary of a Bookseller - Shaun Bythell

I guess the dream of many a booklover is to run a little bookstore in a quiet town, but with the rise of the mega stores, online reading downloading and Amazon we all know that times are changed.  In this book we meet Shaun Bythell, who writes about the second hand bookstore that he owns in Wigtown Scotland.  We get to meet his employees, the customers and hear about the books they buy and sell as he writes about a year in his life.  4/5

Sounds like a book I would really enjoy 😊

That would be neat. There are still many people who want to buy books, but perhaps not enough of them live within a distance profitable enough for a bookshop to flourish, not unless it is in London or New York.
