Notes:
'Do you have a list of your books, or do I just have to stare at them?' Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires in the shop and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should by an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what the shop is, home invasions during the Wigtown Book Festival and Granny, his neurotic Italian assistant who likes digging for river mud to make poultices. 'The Diary of a Bookseller' (soon to be a major TV series) introduced us to the joys and frustrations of life lived in books. Sardonic and sympathetic in equal measures, 'Confessions of a Bookseller' will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.

I'd love to work for Bythell. He gets away with being curmudgeonly in a way we'd sometimes love to at the library. Very amusing. "What's your best price?" [won't give the answer, spoiler.] Genius.
