I am the other joint owner of the bookshop! I have been a bookseller, of one sort or another, for 22 years (half of my life!). I deal with exciting things like accounts and paperwork, plus the buying and selling of 2nd hand books, which I had to learn about rather quickly once we bought the shop as I knew nothing about them before that. I will usually have a packet of cookies stashed behind the counter to keep my blood sugar levels up. My favourite time in the shop is busy Christmas days when we juggle unpacking and putting out stock, serving lots of customers and re-ordering all the books we’re selling for next day’s delivery. I read mostly fiction, rotating between crime, contemporary, historical and sci-fi.
