I have been failing at updating the blog, please forgive me. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and a happy new year!

Last week I interviewed Ian Rankin about his favourite children's books, and David Almond about the now-extinct beat poetry bookshops of Newcastle. I've spoken to Jacqueline Wilson about her dream bookshop - it has a bookshop rabbit. Then there's Napoleon Bunnyparte, the real-life bookshop rabbit of The Book Barge, which is soon going to be heading across the Channel to sell books in France. (Just to clarify: the owner, Sarah, will be selling the books, not the rabbit, though stranger things have probably happened!).
If you want to get in touch about The Bookshop Book, you can drop me an email.
