Hello all and Happy September! Will it be 'normal'?! What is normal nowadays??!! I know there's been ton of books released in the past week so at least that part of our normality is back! Which one to buy/read first I wonder?!!
On to the books and it's been a fairly productive week even though I haven't felt like I've given books my full attention! Another 4 books have been knocked off the TBR pile but then I did a silly and added 3 to my Netgalley TBR - oops!! Here's my look back...
THE UNWINDING by JACKIE MORRIS - 5 STARS
It was her way into our group. A chance to get close.
I knew from the day she arrived that she couldn't be trusted.
And I was right.
Alice didn't come to the village for peace and quiet.
She came for revenge.
'The right book has a neverendingness, and so does the right bookshop.'
This is the story of our love affair with books, whether we arrange them on our shelves, inhale their smell, scrawl in their margins or just curl up with them in bed. Taking us on a journey through comfort reads, street book stalls, mythical libraries, itinerant pedlars, radical pamphleteers, extraordinary bookshop customers and fanatical collectors, Canterbury bookseller Martin Latham uncovers the curious history of our book obsession - and his own.
Part cultural history, part literary love letter and part reluctant memoir, this is the tale of one bookseller and many, many books.
