Welcome to what is my first book haul of 2019 and I’m certainly starting off this year with a bang, which is to say I’ve made a huge dent in the two Waterstones vouchers I was given at Christmas, and that’s not including a couple of pre-orders either.
No synopsis is really needed for this memoir because the title speaks for itself – The Diary of a Bookseller. That’s all it is. Daily journal entries by Shaun Bythell, a bookseller who owns one the second largest second-hand bookshop in Scotland – The Bookshop. Not exactly inventive but as they say, simplicity is often the best so as to focus more on substance rather than appearance.
Or more accurately, yes I do read more than just YA fiction!
