As the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland, you might think Shaun Bythell days are taken up with sorting through rare and valuable first editions-or snoozing by the fire with the latest literary gem. But you’d be wrong.

Warm, honest and very, very funny, Confessions of a Bookseller is the real story of a life lived in books.
