Confessions of a Bookseller THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Confessions of a Bookseller THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Author: Shaun Bythell Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/08/2019

A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Irreverently funny ... kept me giggling all week.' Scotland on Sunday Do you have a list of your books, or do I just have to stare at them? Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires in the shop and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should be an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a shop is, home invasions during the Wigtown Book Festival and Granny, his neurotic Italian assistant who likes digging for river mud to make poultices. The Diary of a Bookseller (soon to be a major TV series) introduced us to the joys and frustrations of life lived in books. Sardonic and sympathetic in equal measure, Confessions of a Bookseller will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.

Diario de un librero

Diario de un librero

Author: Shaun Bythell Format: eBook Release Date: 18/06/2018

Las divertidas memorias de un librero excentrico y apasionado que lucha por sobrevivir en plena era amazonica.Shaun Bythell regenta The Bookshop, la libreria de viejo mas grande de Escocia. Contiene 100.000 volumenes, dos kilometros de estanterias, pasillos laberinticos y acogedoras chimeneas, todo ello en un hermoso pueblo situado a orillas del mar. El paraiso de un bibliofilo, verdad? Bueno, no exactamente..."e;Cuando compre The Bookshop en 2001 tenia una vaga idea sobre el funcionamiento de una libreria. Ninguna de mis expectativas se cumplio. A diario me sorprenden las preguntas que formulan los clientes y sus cabalas en torno a la gestion del negocio (extranas conjeturas para explicar la procedencia de los libros o la manera como les ponemos precio). Por la tienda desfila el mas amplio espectro de la especie humana: unos regatean, otros recomiendan libros; unos son espectacularmente groseros, otros te cuentan su vida o quieren conocer la tuya... En este diario se narran algunos de los encuentros mas memorables."e;"e;Diario de un librero es una obra clida y asombrosamente entretenida. Merece convertirse en uno de esos best-sellers que tanto irritan a su autor."e;Sunday Mail"e;Un libro maravillosamente divertido."e;The Observer"e;Te insto a comprar este libro y, por favor, aun a riesgo de ser increpado y vilipendiado, cmpraselo a un librero de carne y hueso."e;Sunday Express
