Booky books - 21st Mar 2018

Booky books Many of us who love books and reading also tend to enjoy what we informally call "booky books". We mean it to encompass things such as Tolkien's Gown by Rick Gekoski or The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell or The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald or Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshop by J Campbell Trafficking in Old Books by Anthony Marshall. There are so many to choose from and you come across some wonderful quotes as well, such as these from George Orwell..

Would I like to be a bookseller de metier? On the whole ....and some happy days I spent in the shop - no.

There are two well known types of pest by whom every second-hand bookshop is haunted. One is the .. person smelling of old food who comes every day and tries to sell you worthless books. The other is the person who orders large quantities of books for which he has no intention of paying.

Our shop had exceptionally interesting stock, yet I doubt whether 10% of our customers knew a good book from a bad one.
