Independent Booksellers’ Week

5 Jul

I’d love to see Independent Booksellers’ Week brought to the U.S. My favorite Cleveland independent bookstore is Mac’s Backs http://www.macsbacks.com/

The Matilda Project

Dear Readers,

I hope you have all had a lovely Independent Booksellers’ Week. I celebrated by buying books at the London Review Bookshop (including a beautiful edition of Teffi’s short stories published by the independent Pushkin Press) and attending The Big Bookshop Debate at Foyles. I hope you did something equally enjoyable!

Last year I wrote about one independent bookshop every day this week. This year, well, I have a full-time job that involves listening to screaming children all day every day, so I’ve been a bit too tired! However, lots of bookish treats are coming your way in the next little while, including:

A cult favourite: the beloved Mr. B’s Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath, England;

and the massive booklovers’ paradise Dussman Das Kulturkaufhaus, also in beautiful Berlin.

You’ll be meeting them all soon. In the meantime, use this week as a chance…
