There’s much abuzz on The Diary of a Bookseller from indie book shops


Like libraries, local bookstores are pillars of their communities. Indie book shops represent the spirit of creativity, identity, curiosity, and expression. Essentially, these businesses become a haven and support for authors and readers alike.

That being said, we’re so pleased see heaps of enthusiasm and excitement surrounding one of our much-praised new release, The Diary of a Bookseller. It’s a total joy to see indie book shops around the world sharing their love of our newest release. The book with its dry humor is sure to keep any reader (and bookseller) on the edge of their seat.

Check out some social media praise for The Diary of a Bookseller below. It’s buzz-worthy.

This book was the best part of my Tuesday. Yesterday, in between leaving work sick and scheduling nerve-wracking vet appointments, I picked up this as-yet-released memoir of a man running a used bookshop in rural Scotland. A truly great book can both transport you someplace new and feel as real to you as home; this book does just that. Thank you, fellow bookseller, for making me laugh on a bad day. I will repay you by making you a staff pick. * * * #currentlyreading #amreading #books📚 #bookrecommendations #booksbooksbooks #wednesdaymotivation #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstore #bookshop #bookselling #bookseller #thediaryofabookseller
