Shaun Bythell owns The Bookshop, Wigtown – Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop. In these wry diaries, he provides an inside look at the trials and tribulations of life in the book trade and evokes the rhythms and charms of small-town life.

He takes us with him on buying trips to old estates and auction houses, recommends books (both lost classics and new discoveries), introduces us to the thrill of the unexpected find, describes struggles with eccentric customers and wrangles with his own staff, but always with a sharp and sympathetic eye.

‘Warm, witty and laugh-out-loud funny, this gently meandering tale of British eccentricity will stay long in the memory.’ Daily Mail
