Review; Confessions of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell

Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the book Confessions of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell, which is the sequel to Diary of a Bookseller, through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
"Do you have a list of your books, or do I just have to stare at them?" Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires in the shop and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should be an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a shop is, home invasions during the Wigtown Book Festival and Granny, his neurotic Italian assistant who likes digging for river mud to make poultices. The Diary of a Bookseller (soon to be a major TV series) introduced us to the joys and frustrations of life lived in books. Sardonic and sympathetic in equal measure, Confessions of a Bookseller will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.

My Thoughts on the Book
As I've read Diary of a Bookseller, I couldn't resist this Confessions of a Bookseller. Confessions of a Bookseller is just as laugh out loud as the first, especially if one has experience with secondhand bookstores and quirky customers. As the setting is in Wigtown, Scotland, it's even more charming.

In the book there's the mention of a Night Before Christmas video with Nicky and I've found it on Youtube.
