OXFORD-PALS! On Thursday I'll be at Blackwell's in Oxford at 7pm on a panel with Mark Forsyth and other lovely people debating whether bookshops will still be around in 100 years (Hint: my answer is yes). I'll also be chatting about The Bookshop Book and signing copies. http://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk/stores/oxford-bookshop/events/
LANCASHIRE-PEOPLE: On Saturday I'm going to be at Ebb and Flo books in Chorley at 2pm, talking about bookshops and signing books. There will be cake! http://www.ebbandflobookshop.co.uk/

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.
