The Notting Hill Bookshop: 9th December
LONDONERS: Tomorrow night (Tuesday 9th December) I'm going to be chatting about The Bookshop Book (www.jen-campbell.co.uk/the-bookshop-book) and signing copies at The Notting Hill Bookshop at 7pm. (I'll actually be around before that if you want to say hi, but the talk starts at 7 ). If you're nearby, it would be lovely to see you, or if you know someone who lives in London then please pass the message on. It's the last date of The Bookshop Book book tour before Christmas. In the past two months, I've been up and down the country, and across the channel to France, and it's been lots and lots of fun. Thanks to everyone who's come along to an event! xx

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.
