We Are Open! (again)

That’s right, as if opening a bookshop once in a year wasn’t stressful enough, we went and did it twice! I think the stress may have got to us all a bit more this time round. The madness set it and we created a musical theatre number to deal with it! This is something we …

Time Flies

Bookbugs on tour

We have been open for 3 and a half weeks and I feel like we are settling into a routine.  I still feel hopelessly behind and depending when you email me, I could respond in 5 minutes or 5 days. However, a natural flow has started to emerge and I’m feeling less like I’m fighting …

My Parents Opened A Bookshop

My Parents Opened A Bookshop (And that’s pretty cool)You’ve all read Dan and Leanne’s blog posts about their journey of opening a bookshop and from (one of) their daughters perspective, its pretty awesome.

Project Fear

We’re now a week in, well 10 days actually, and reality has started to kick back in after a glorious 7 days of smashing our targets, meeting lots of fantastic people in the shop and just generally being in love with the place and all it represents. Then, we have the hottest August Bank Holiday …
