Bookshops: 'Like Entering Aladdin's Cave'


"Walking into a bookshop is like entering Aladdin's Cave. No, it is better than that. Thoughts, words, ideas, truths are almost tangible. I go in with a very good idea of what I want, but am very soon seduced by other books. Where to start, what to choose? Sometimes it takes my breath away. You see, we live so far from town, an opportunity like this must be seized and savored, yet I must choose before closing time."

--Jenny Nimmo, author of the Charlie Bone series, in a q&a with Books Are My Bag
