It started with a whisper. Gill at one of my favourite bookshops, the Little Ripon Bookshop said they might be about to become a bit bigger. This week her dream (and mine) becomes reality - they are expanding into the next door premises. I'll repeat that. An independent shop on a high street is expanding! How often do you hear that kind of news? Not only that, but this is a business that can teach Amazon a trick or two about quick service and personalised recommendations. Within a couple of visits, Gill had sussed out my tastes and has since introduced me to a myriad of fantastic authors. Order a book from them and you can usually pick it up the next day.
Do you have a favourite book shop in or near the Yorkshire Dales? Would love to hear about it!
