"When we read, we start at the beginning and continue until we reach the end. When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out." - Vickie Karp

I'm going to be on BBCR4's Open Book on Sunday 25th, talking about 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.' They'll also have some actors reading out quotes from the book [exciting!]. It's on at 4:00pm [GMT] and you'll be able to stream it live over here http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ - that streaming should work worldwide. [It'll be available for UK residents on iplayer afterwards]
Jen Campbell is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops' series, and 'The Bookshop Book.' She's also an award-winning poet and short story writer. Her poetry collection 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' is published by The Rialto and she is currently writing a short story collection. She runs a Booktube channel over at youtube.com/jenvcampbell

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
