There’s a good (excellent) website which works as a sort of Trip Advisor for secondhand bookshops, and which you can find here: thebookguide . Our latest review, dated May 2016 is not entirely flattering. It is however, as far I can tell, entirely accurate. Since then of course, there’s been a change of ownership and a lot of good hard work to improve things, not to mention a long list of things still to do. However, in case we’d be tempted to rest on our own sense of what we’ve achieved, I’m posting the May review below and asking anyone who’s been in since July to visit thebookguide and leave a more recent precis of things (good, bad or indifferent). Thanks.
We are still, to be frank, in some degree of chaos and disorder, and had hoped to be a little more organised by this point; but to be honest, we hadn’t anticipated the massive rise in custom engendered simply by presenting things a little better and by putting in a bit more time and effort. The difference between being wild and homeless as opposed to simply feral and aimless remains, for the time being, a fine one.
