Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had #TopTenTuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is:

Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had

I always thought it would be nice to be a bookstore owner. I’ve never worked in a bookstore though so I have no idea what it must really like – and also, how sustainable a business is it? – but I thought that I would make a post with books about people working in bookstores 🙂


Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore – Robin Sloan

84, Charing Cross Road – Helene Hanff (such a classic! I reread this ever so often)

The Bookshop – Penelope Fitzgerald

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend – Katarina Bivald

The Diary of a Bookseller – Shaun Bythell (nonfiction)

The Little Paris Bookshop – Nina George

Books, Baguettes, and Bedbugs: the Left Bank world of Shakespeare and Co – Jeremy Mercer (also known as Time Was Soft There)

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore – Matthew J Sullivan

The Small Hand – Susan Hill

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops – Jen Campbell

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
