Confessions of a Bookseller
Confessions of a Bookseller | Shaun Bythell
5 posts | 6 read | 18 to read
"Do you have a list of your books, or do I just have to stare at them?"Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires in the shop and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should be an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a shop is, home invasions during the Wigtown Book Festival and Granny, his neurotic Italian assistant who likes digging for river mud to make poultices.The Diary of a Bookseller (soon to be a major TV series) introduced us to the joys and frustrations of life lived in books. Sardonic and sympathetic in equal measure, Confessions of a Bookseller will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.

I would like to thank NetGalley and Profile Books for a free copy for an honest review.
I was excited to read this book as I love books about books and bookstores. I enjoyed the first part of the book and all the interesting characters and the books that were mentioned. I think the author needed something more to be happening in order to make the book more exciting. I finished the book but it seemed more like a chore.

EadieB @rwmg You May like it so I would give it a try! 6mo
