The Last Bookshop

I really, really want to share this with you. Now I know that when you see that it is 20 minutes long you might be slightly put off but it is honestly so, so worth it. I was going to say ‘especially if you are a book lover’ but actually it might be more important for those who aren’t as it is all about the reasons why we need to keep books shops.

As you may have cottoned on recently, I can’t think why, I am on a small mission to make sure we don’t lose bookshops (independent or high street) and when I was sent this, along with lots and lots of emails from bookshops and book lovers about Celebrate the Bookshop (keep them coming) earlier in the week, from Stu of Winston’s Dad’s blog I knew I had to share it with you. If you have already seen it, as I believe it has done the rounds before, then just sit and watch it again. Thank you.

Isn’t it just bloody brilliant?

  1. What a wonderful video. On a related note, my other half Tim just went on holiday without me to LA and about the only time I got jealous was when he told me about a place there called The Last Bookshop. It sounds amazing (and thankfully is not in fact the only bookshop in LA). It’s huge, for one thing, and includes an old bank vault stuffed with books, a tunnel made out of books and fiction sorted by colour. Here’s one of Tim’s photos and a link to more info about it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/talkie_tim/8692931453/in/photostream

    If I had all of the money I think I would go on a world bookshop tour. It would be awesome.
