London Magazine asks for bookshop votes

The Bookseller - 05.07.11 | Katie Allen

The London Magazine has launched a competition for readers to nominate their favourite bookshop, highlighting indies including Daunts.

As part of the publication's The Great Little Shop Awards, this month the magazine is asking readers to nominate their favourite bookshop. Entrants, who can vote online, will be in with the chance to win a set of 50 classic hardbacks from Everyman's Library, selected by m.d. David Campbell.

In a separate article on the site, new Waterstone's m.d. James Daunt said of shopping in bookstores versus online: "You will leave with a spring in your step after an uplifting experience. Why would you give up that to save £5 and have someone drop it through your letterbox?"
