Summary

The Bookshop in Wigtown is a bookworm's idyll—with thousands of books across nearly a mile of shelves, a real log fire, and Captain, the bookshop cat. You'd think after twenty years, owner Shaun Bythell would be used to the customers by now.

Don't get him wrong—there are some good ones among the antiquarian porn-hunters, die-hard Arthurians, people who confuse bookshops for libraries and the toddlers just looking for a nice cosy corner in which to wee. He's sure there are. There must be some good ones, right?

Filled with the pernickety warmth and humour that has touched listeners around the world, stuffed with literary treasures, hidden gems and incunabula, Remainders of the Day is Shaun Bythell's latest entry in his bestselling diary series.

I absolutely love this book

I have so enjoyed sharing shaun bythell's life over the past couple of years, This instalment did not disappoint and always leaves me wanting more... Granny is sure to make you laugh out load ... shauns life is a happy mix of friends, family, awkward customers, captain the cat and wine, all based in a wonderful bookshop in wigtown that will make you want to darken it door sometime in the future, P.s come back Nicky we miss you x

A tale of moving boxes north of the Border.

A slow-burner to start, this lovely tale of bookselling in Wigtown charmed and interested me. The characters are well delineated and I honestly didn’t want it to end.
