Thoughtful Gifts for Curious People

Seven Kinds of People You Find in Bookshops


| /

In Seven Kinds of People You Find in Bookshops bookseller Shaun Bythell distils the essence of his experience into a warm, witty and quirky taxonomy of the book-loving public. Bythell has met pretty much every kind of customer there is - from the charming, erudite and deep-pocketed to the eccentric, flatulent and possibly larcenous. So, step inside to meet the crafty Antiquarian, the shy and retiring Erotica Browser and gormless yet strangely likeable shop assistant Student Hugo - along with much loved bookseller favourites like the passionate Sci-Fi Fan, the voracious Railway Collector and the ever-elusive Perfect Customer.

The perfect gift for lovers of books and bookshops, and anyone with a curiosity about human nature!
