Shaun Bythell owns the Bookshop, Scotland’s largest secondhand bookshop. It contains 100,000 books spread over a mile of shelving, with twisting corridors and roaring fires, all set in a beautiful, rural town by the edge of the sea.

A book-lover’s paradise? Well, almost…. 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, who include the ski-suit-wearing, bin-foraging Nicky. 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, and evokes the rhythms and charms of small-town life, always with a sharp and sympathetic eye.

Hilarious, wry, and charming, Shaun Bythell’s stories from his secondhand bookshop in remotest Scotland are sure to delight listeners of all stripes.
