« Green Almonds: Letters from Palestine | Main | How to Find Love in a Bookshop Winner! »



Sounds like a book I would love! Please include me in your draw. A couple of books come to mind that maybe are more about book lovers than books: Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman and 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff.


This sounds like a book I would like! I was going to suggest the two books Pam mentioned in her previous comment. Instead, I'll add The Year of Reading Dangerously by Andy Miller and anything by Michael Dirda. I just bought Browsings: A Year of Reading, Collecting and Living With Books by him.


I don´t regret the job choices I made in life, but now wonder anyway what I would have done if someone generously left me a small bookshop.
Not applying for the draw but books about books are delightful,adding to your list: a book about Will Schwalbe The End Of Your Life Bookclub, Nina George: The Little Bookshop On the Seine.


Some superfluous words there alas (a book about)
let's blame the heat...


This one sounds like a balm to soothe all wounds. Will look it up ASAP! Thank you.


I've enjoyed John Dunnings Bookman series.

I read this recently and enjoyed it, it has that lovely feel-good-factor to it. A lovely read.

looking for a book about books? How to Be a Heroine: Or, What I've Learned from Reading Too Much by Samantha Ellis has enough titles to keep you reading for many years to come.


Thanks so much for the opportunity. Sounds like a book I’d really enjoy — please enter my name for the draw.


Oh, how can I pass this up? I can't. :) Please put my name in the hat.
One of my most favorite bookstore books, which has already been mentioned, is 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff.


This books sounds like it would be great fun. I, too, have to mention 84, Charing Cross Road. Two other good ones are Parnassus on Wheels and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. Just to throw in a mystery, Ngaio Marsh’s False Scent doesn’t take place in a book shop, but the book shop often appears in the story. And, a last one that I like most of all is Elizabeth Goudge’s City of Bells. A beautiful book.

If it’s not too late, i would like to be entered in the drawing. It it is too late, it is still always very nice to chat about books. Thank you.
