"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.

Very similar to Diary of a Bookseller but less engrossing. Perhaps familiarity breeds contempt or there is too much of a good thing. The bits about buying books are more interesting and differentiated than those about selling books. The new character, the old-young Italian Granny, rapidly grows tiresome. The author's usual rants about Amazon are understandable, but he somewhat gives away the game when he complains about Amazon prioritising customers over sellers. Declaration: I bought this book second-hand from a third-party seller through Amazon. ( )

A rollicking read - witty, quirky and life affirming. Mote to self: Visit The Bookshop, Wigtown, soon! ( )

Third diary I’ve read of Shaun’s. Find these a comforting, charming read, & enjoyed his lock-down Facebook quizzes. With what he makes in a day, I don’t quite understand how he can afford to remain open. But so glad that he does. We will miss these quiet havens when they are gone. ( )

More day-to-day snark and good humor (if not cheer). ( )

This is the second volume in Shaun Bythell’s diaries about running The Book Shop in Wigtown, Scotland. I found that the first volume contained more hilarious incidents; this one is more contemplative as Shaun turns 45 and reflects on his life so far. But there are still occasions to chuckle as Shaun goes on book-buying expeditions; accommodates a live-in summer helper whose eccentricities rival and cancel out those of his primary assistant, Nicky; and tests his patience mightily with some of the sillier things customers say. My favourite “character”, if one can have a favourite character in stories about real people, is “Mole-Man”, the quiet and voracious reader who comes in, scuttles around collecting a variety of interesting books, pays, and leaves. Shaun likes him because he never attempts to engage him in conversation.

This volume also features walk-on appearances by people running The Open Book, a bookstore with an Airbnb above it where you can rent the Airbnb and run the bookstore for a week. That would be a lot of fun or very stressful—I think I’d want to deliberately choose a low-traffic time of year, rather than, say, Wigtown Book Festival time.

I’d recommend this if you liked the first volume of Shaun’s diaries, if you like books about booksellers, or if you fantasize about running your own bookshop—this might cure you of the rosier delusions :) ( )
