    Description

    Shaun Bythell owns The Bookshop, Wigtown - Scotland's largest second-hand bookshop. In these wry and hilarious diaries, Shaun provides an inside look at the trials and tribulations of life in the book trade, from struggles with eccentric customers to wrangles with his own staff.

    He takes us with him on buying trips to old estates and auction houses, recommends books and evokes the rhythms and charms of small-town life, always with a sharp and sympathetic eye.

    Great book

    So as a confessed bibliophile, I adored this book. Extremely funny and real. I am going to see if i can find a second-hand copy in a shop in South Africa to add to my ‘real’ book collection. Wish me luck

    Wonderful flow

    I liked listening to the reader's voice and to the flow of the story. Perfect combination that worked for me. Highly recommended! And I'm not completely put off the idea of once running a bookshop.

    Great narrator and a good story

    "The Diary of a Bookseller" was an interesting book, and the narrator Robin Laing did a great job. For me that is the ultimate sound for the book now.

    I guess I expected even more sarcasm and jokes. Instead the diary was more realistic and human.

    I liked how in chapter 14 (and some others) Bythell talked honestly about the negative impact the chain bookstores had and Amazon is having on bookshops.
