Inhaltsangabe

Shaun Bythell owns The Bookshop, Wigtown - Scotland's largest second-hand bookshop. In these wry and hilarious diaries, Shaun provides an inside look at the trials and tribulations of life in the book trade, from struggles with eccentric customers to wrangles with his own staff.

He takes us with him on buying trips to old estates and auction houses, recommends books and evokes the rhythms and charms of small-town life, always with a sharp and sympathetic eye.

Great narrator and a good story

"The Diary of a Bookseller" was an interesting book, and the narrator Robin Laing did a great job. For me that is the ultimate sound for the book now.

I guess I expected even more sarcasm and jokes. Instead the diary was more realistic and human.

I liked how in chapter 14 (and some others) Bythell talked honestly about the negative impact the chain bookstores had and Amazon is having on bookshops.
