I enjoyed this book and would especially recommend it for those who read and liked The Diary of a Bookseller by the same author He owns the second largest second hand bookstore in Scotland in Wigtown situated in the southwest of ScotlandI could have sworn Nicky left for another job by the end of the last book but she is back in this book She s pretty funny Shaun at times pays her compliments to us not her but mostly he is down on her to the reader I don t know whether to her personallyI get the feeling he does not ridicule her to her face A young woman from Italy volunteers to work at the bookshop the entire summer for free in exchange for room and board Her name is Emanuela but soon after she starts work because she is always complaining about her various maladies she acuires the nickname of Granny I dunno maybe the first time she playfully swears to Shaun it is somewhat shocking but humorous but thereafter it gets a bit old as she swears like a sailor in many of his diary entries Oh I forgot to mention This is his diary of his life and his bookstore starting from January 1 2015 to December 31 2015 At the beginning and end of each entry he informs us about such minutiae as what s in the till how many customers he had that day number of online orders and orders found Each month starts off with a passage from another book about second hand bookshops and selling The Intimate Thoughts of John Baxter Bookseller by Augustus Muir London Methuen Co Ltd1942Oh yeah and he has this annoying habit of feeding back to us how EmanuelaGranny talks I guess it was supposed to be funny but it started to get a bit old for me I like to read a books a which have been read by many many people I love a the folded corners of books a because it makes me wonder what caused the person to stop a reading at this point What a happened Did the cat need a to be fed Did the police a knock on the door a to tell you that your husband had been killed Or did you just need a go for a piss All of these a things all of them make you fink about a the other people who have read a the book Ha hathat is a funnyBythell is the same sardonic self as he was in his last book and I guess some people are put off by him but I think if he was a Mr Rogers from Mr Roger s Neighborhood the book would be borrrrring Some of his observations and some of the stuff that comes out his customer s mouths are uite interesting and or funny He typically gives us the weather for each day and I like that because I like rainy days to curl up with a book and there certainly were enough of those days where his bookshop was located He made many a run to different homes to assess books the person at the home wanted to sell and that was interesting enough For those people who think owning a second hand bookshop in which one wants to have their head above water ie be solvent make money than lose money is easy find some other business to start I would have to guess that so many different businesses have been adversely affected by the Covid pandemic and I would think second hand bookshops are one cluster of businesses that have been harmed But I don t know that for a factcertainly there has been time being at home and so maybe book sales have been positively affected as this is a leisure time activity Reviewsdefinitely worth reading is his website for The Bookshop
