I've spent this afternoon doing a new window display, its always so hard to choose which titles to put in the window and I have to force myself to stay on track and not get distracted buy all the books that take my fancy. I could do with a few extra hours in the day to work my way through the ever growing pile of books on my 'To Read' list I may in fact need another couple of lifetimes!
Beautiful sunny day in Windermere! We've got a book sale going on outside today with paperback fiction £1 each or 7 for £5 and non-fiction and brand new children's books £2 each or 4 for £6 so lots of bargains to be had. Come and have a look before the rain comes back and we have to pack them away (although saying that this week is looking like a belter according to the Met Office, fingers crossed they've got it right!)

Christmas Fair

On Saturday the 17th of December from 10am until 9pm there is a Christmas Fair being held at The Rayrigg Rooms in Bowness-on-Windermere with a wide variety of stalls run by local traders and businesses, from vintage clothes to linen and lace, stocking fillers to shoes! And of course Fireside Bookshop will be there with a great selection of books and ephemera, there will be mulled wine available all day and a tea shop selling delicious cakes as well as live music all day and a Santa's Grotto between 5pm-7pm so if you're in the area come along for a great day of shopping, supping and supporting independent traders!

Book Club

I often find it hard to chose what to read next, working in a bookshop helps in as much as there's plenty to go at but at the same time it can be overwhelming and I often end up with a stack of books I desperately want to read but just can't pick one! So I'm thinking about starting an online bookclub for inspiration. We pick a book each month and anyone who wants to read it can leave feedback on here. Any suggestions for the first book to read?
