It’s World Book Day and we have the books at our new shop in Wigtown – Scotland’s National Book Town – though it took some doing and it was something of a learning curve for us newbie booksellers. There are some great titles on the list this year including the hilarious World of Norm by Jonathan Meres. Jonathan has been to Wigtown Book Festival a couple of times and he really knows how to entertain an audience, and we know his books are equally funny. We also love Kipper, who couldn’t love that little dog, he’s been a favourite book for children for 25 years now!
Shalla is celebrating World Book Day by sharing our stories with the children of Springholm Nursery near Dumfries and the following day she’s travelling up to the Glenkens to ready our books to the primary school children at Dalry School, up in the north of the region. Jayne on the other hand is going to find a cosy chair and celebrate World Book Day by reading a book!
