The joy of running a bookshop is the joy of of always discovering books that I need to read. I was always one of those people (I prefer the term ‘gently mad’ as coined by Nicholas Basbanes) who would buy at least three books a week, slowly stock-piling and collecting. I loved touching the covers and contemplating for long stretches of time which of them were coming home with me.
The joy of visiting bookshops and the joy of selecting new and secondhand books for my shop is a tactile, deep time, where I lose everything else. The book holds its sway. Now, I would like to share monthly lists of new and secondhand books that I plan on reading and collecting for my personal library in 2012. Read on!
All books are now -or soon to be- in the shop. I also am happy to ship to our out-of-town friends!
