Idiosyncratic Bookshops and Lovely Libraries

My bookshelf (above) has been published today on, which is creating new and unique ways for readers to find amazing books. In this bookshelf post I write about the serendipity and synergy in what can be found through browsing (as opposed to purposeful searching). Idiosyncratic bookshops and lovely libraries bring unexpected twists to my research and writing.

Read what I have to say about the books above:

and the places I found them, which include Raven Bookshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Shakespeare & Company Bookshop in Paris; Animal Kitchen Bookshop in Narberth, Wales (now, sadly departed); The British Library; and the Festilitt second-hand bookstall in Parisot, France. I also mention Victoria Bookshop in Haverfordwest, Wales.
