THE DIARY OF A BOOKSELLER
by Shaun Bythell
published by Profile Books

*

Meet Shaun Bythell, bookshop owner, bibliophile and misanthrope extraordinaire. He lives and works in The Bookshop, Wigtown, whose crooked shelves contain anything from a sixteenth-century Bible to a first-edition Agatha Christie. A booklover's paradise? Well, almost...

In Shaun's honest and wryly hilarious diaries, he reveals the highs and lows of life in the book trade, as he contends with eccentric customers, bin-foraging employees and a perennially empty till. Along the way he'll take you on buying trips to old estates and auction houses, recommend lost classics — and introduce you to the thrill of the unexpected find.
