Confessions of a Bookseller Reviews

  • Kirsti
    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!So as soon as I saw this on Netgalley, I knew I had to request it.

  • Paul
    It sounds perfect, a mile of bookshelves, 100,000 books to choose from, open fires, a bookshop cat and when you have selected your purchases then you can take a walk down to the sea to sit and read them. This place can be found in Scotland’s book town, Wigtown, and if you were a visitor you...

    Last year I picked up Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell, the proprietor of a small bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland, but as I was on hiatus I didn’t post a review. To be honest I didn’t find it particularly riveting, but it certainly seemed to capture the reading public’s interest.C...
