Calling Booksellers and Bookshop-Lovers Everywhere!
Hello lovely booksellers, and bookshop-loving folk.
It's now twelve weeks until the release of The Bookshop Book! (Twelve weeks!) And to celebrate all things bookshop-wise, I'm calling out to booksellers AND bookshop-lovers about these two things below:
1. I'm going to be doing 'A Bookshop a Day' blog posts all through September and the beginning of October. Each day I'll write about a different bookshop somewhere in the world (a bit like the Bookshop Spotlights I did a while back). So, if you are a bookseller who'd like your bookshop featured (or you're a bookshop-lover who wants to chat about your favourite bookshop), please drop me an email, saying 'Me, please!' firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
2. I'm going to be doing lots ofevents for The Bookshop Book throughout October, November and December here, there and everywhere. If you would like me to come and do an event at your bookshop, please drop me a line: email@example.com. I'm all yours :)
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.

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.
