"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 be an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a 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 measure, Confessions of a Bookseller will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.… (mehr)

The follow up to his Diary of a Bookseller, a book I enjoyed even more than I expected, so when I heard this was out, I immediately went out and bought it.

Every bit as good as the first, though where the first was primarily wacky and funny, this one had a sharper, more contemplative edge and, as far as my memory goes, this one feels a bit more personal. The book he read/talked about made more of an impact with me in this book too, though I can't say why.

A great read if you like books about books, or memoirs of misanthropic booksellers.

Feels weird reading an ebook by an author who clearly hates ebooks, and ebook devices. I wonder how many "Death to Kindle" mugs he's sold versus how many copies of his ebook have been sold. Still I'd love to go to Scotland and see his shop, sadly all the used bookstores in my small city have closed. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyed being taken back to Wigtown and spending more time with this delightfully eccentric bunch of characters. ( )

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! ( )
