If you'd like to hear me chat about the book, head over here to a podcast of me talking about it on BBC Radio 4 (I'm towards the end of the show).
Don't forget, I'm also collecting quotes for the sequel from booksellers and librarians across the world. There are some really great ones coming in - I'm going to have to stop checking my emails in public, as I often laugh away to myself, which generally makes people think I'm some sort of crazy person. But yes, keep them coming! x

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.
