We are throwing in a bit of a curve ball with this week’s Bookstore of the Week!
Today we are celebrating the online bookstore, Best Little Bookshop. This beautiful website may not be a bookshop you can walk into but it has the passion and heart of it’s more tangible companions.
Starting with the vision & passion to do something different with bookselling online & adding in the wish to recapture some of the magic & essence of professional bookselling Best Little Bookshop was born.
The idea is a simple one & we love it because it is driven by the simplest of things; a love of books, real books, real pages, that real book smell. AND not just a love of traditional fiction, but of the unique, the creative, the totally wacky (all things A&CB!). We were delighted to see Jim Curious, Lines For All Occasions, Hide & Eek AND Literary Listography on the home page. Each of these titles is an example of why bookstores (both online & on the high street) are so important. They are books that only work as tangible products. They are objects people WANT in their homes, that people WANT to share, that people WANT to give as gifts. They are the reason we love what we do!
So Best Little Bookshop we raise our glasses to you – THREE CHEERS to beautiful books! To books you can still write notes in the margins of & to books you can share with friends.
For amazing bookish gifts (one for you and one for someone you love) and to read all about their story visit them at http://www.bestlittlebookshop.com/
