Confessions of a Bookseller

by Shaun Bythell Author

The best bookshops are the ones where you walk into a densely-packed wonderland of words, sternly observed by the crotchety character behind the counter who's seen it all and brooks no nonsense. But if you keep your confidence and sense of wonder, they may bestow upon you the best recommendations and recollections, telling unparalleled true stories too strange for fiction. Shaun Bythell is one such bookseller, holding court in a rural Scottish village, sharing his observations of the bookselling life. If you find him eccentric, wait til you meet the staff and customers! All told, a heartwarming diary of the joys and frustrations you'll find when you spend more time around books than people, no matter where you are in the world.
