The Diary of a Bookseller av Shaun Bythell innehåller sanna historier från Skottland med olika sorters bokläsare, härliga små anekdoter och många boktips: "Shaun Bythell owns The Bookshop, Wigtown - Scotland's largest second-hand bookshop.

He takes us with him on buying trips to old estates, 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."
