Image of Shaun Bythell: Confessions of a Bookseller

Shaun Bythell owns The Bookshop, Wigtown – Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop. It contains 100,000 books, spread over a mile of shelving, with twisting corridors and roaring fires, and all set in a beautiful, rural town by the edge of the sea. A book-lover’s paradise? Well, almost…

In The Diary of a Bookseller, Shaun charmed even the most cynical of people with his tales about the eccentricities and wonders of working in the book trade. It was entertaining, uplifting, and hilarious in equal measure and we’re delighted that Shaun is back with a new book, Confessions of a Bookseller.
