    The diary of a bookseller

    Bythell, Shaun,
    Published : Profile Books London 2017 ISBN : 9781781258620 1781258627
    So, hands up who hasn't wondered what it would be like to run a bookshop? Shaun's laconic wit depicts the rum characters he encounters, balanced against the daily struggle to survive against the ruthlessness of the major online sellers. There are itinerant staff members with outré beliefs and dangerous dietary habits, and clientele whose perverse logic and utter parsimoniousness knows no bounds. How does Shaun keep his sense of humour, and the wolf from the door? Very entertaining, and best of all, true. Recommended for anyone who has ever doubted the wisdom of the phrase "the customer is always right"!
