Remainders of the Day: More Diaries from The Bookshop, Wigtown

Winter Weekend 2022, 

From one booktown to another…

The Bookshop in Wigtown is the largest second-hand bookshop in Scotland, with over a mile of shelving supporting 100,000 books, a real log fire, and Captain the cat. The owner continues his diary series with a new edition, filled with the pernickety warmth and humour that has touched readers around the world.

John Mitchinson is the publisher of Unbound, one of the creators of QI, the television panel show, and co-host of the Backlisted books podcast.
