characters Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Jen Campbell We're not talking about rooms that are just full of booksWe're talking about bookshops in barns disused factories converted churches and underground car parks Bookshops on boats on buses and in old run down train stations Fold out bookshops undercover bookshops this is the best place I've ever been to bookshopsMeet Sarah and her Book Barge sailing across the sea to France meet Sebastien in Mongolia who sells boo. There is something wonderful about the anticipation of reading a great book about books I chose this book without reading much about it other than the reviews sounded positive so on arrival didn't know what to expect The cover gives the book a feel of a light romance novel but the blurb and contents show it to be much intriguing and genuinely about bookshopsInitially I was intrigued and found some of the stories fascinating The bookshops that are explored are often recommended through chats with authors and other involved in the book world which works wellJen Campbell seems to want to cover bookshops all around a world but that doesn't work as nearly half the book covers shops in the UK before she even goes to France Then the other continents are dealt with very swiftly maybe she could have kept the book in the UK and covered the shops in detailI like the facts and the wonderful things but I got bored with the descriptions of the shops there were too many that had similar stories I'd have liked detail about some of the shops and to have less bookshops covered

Bookshop Book've yet to build a bookshop down in the South PoleThe Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the worldA good bookshop is not just about selling books from shelves but reaching out into the world and making a difference David Almond The Bookshop Book includes interviews and uotes from David Almond Ian Rankin Tracy Chevalier Audrey Niffenegger Jacueline Wilson Jeanette Winterson and many many other. To tell you the truth I was hoping this will be something similar to The Year of Reading Dangerously How Fifty Great Books Saved My Life ie main topic of the book would be BOOKS not shops But I know I know doesn't the title alert me to the fact that this would be a book about bookshops Yes But still I was hoping to read about author's experience her journey if you will and I was not too keen on a selection of small articles about bookshops all over the world Many of the interesting bookshops of course were overlooked like the Maggs Bros Ltd in London's Mayfair which sells antiue books and manuscripts and has its own ghost that is claimed responsible for a few deathly accidents But of course it is impossible to cover all of the uniue and irreplaceable bookshops of the world so Jen Campbell presented us with her own pick of the bestI finished the book in just 2 days and there were moments when I was really into it but it was mainly a selection of interesting facts that kept me amused not the bookshops themselves I made a few notes and marks and will definitely visit a few shops around the UK so for this guidance I am grateful to Ms Campbell I am now moving on to Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops
