Well Read Books

"I have been a keen reader of and about books all my life, but it was only on the occasion of my retirement in 2017 after more than forty years in law that my thoughts turned to the possibility of opening a bookshop. After acquiring the Grapes Bar, fantastically skilled local tradesmen set about converting a very tired space into a well-lit, brightly painted and superbly shelved secondhand bookshop. "
