    1. Thank you, I won't be happy until I've at least one bookshop from every county but I appreciate your encouragement!

  2. I just found your blog via a link on Much Ado Bookshop's website. I know I'm going to have a great deal of vicarious fun here. If you ever roam as far as San Francisco, be sure to visit Green Apple Books on Clement Street. It is not in downtown SF but out in the Richmond area. I live over 200 miles away so I always get a little over-excited and emerge after a couple of hours with an armload of books. I'm saving my pennies for another visit to the UK and hope to get to Much Ado and some of the other shops I'll find in your blog. I dearly love Persephone and Foyles so I will have to revisit those, too. Oh yeah!! Bookshop fun in my future!!

    1. Hi Diane,
      It's good to hear from you. Thank you for the recommendations, I'm determined to visit some American bookshops so your tips are definitely appreciated.
      I hope you enjoy reading about the bookshops I've visited and I definitely recommend visiting Much Ado when you're over here - I'll be posting my experience there very soon...

  3. This is a wonderful list! Have you been to Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath? If you are ever there, it is the most wonderful shop, with a fantastic team of booksellers. Treat yourself to a reading spa there (http://www.mrbsemporium.com/index.php/info/reading_spa), I've had several and they are such a lot of fun! I blogged about the last one here: http://fennellbooks.co.uk/journal/2015/3/21/mr-bs-reading-spa-no-7

    1. I so want to go to Mr B's! I've been wanting a reading spa (and hinting about it to my family for Christmas/birthday presents) since before the blog began, so having now read your post I'm even more determined to get there.

      PS. I'm pleased you appreciate the list

  4. Another one to add to your "to visit" list - I recommend The Bookcase in Lowden, Notts: https://www.flickr.com/photos/juliac2006/24777347910/ small but packed - and well plugged into the local community
