I came across this photo and it certainly encapsulates my weekend in one shot! Those of you who have visited Madhatters will know we are not a large shop but we utilise every inch of our two book rooms but with the massive September drop of so many wonderful new titles I think we are full to bursting with beautiful books. My car is now a make shift store room and whilst my bathroom at home does not quite match the photo above - it's pretty close!
On top of that we have a table full of books written by our wonderful lit fest authors ready to be signed at next weeks events. From booker prize nominee, Maggie Shipstead to The Art of Transformation by Nick Kary, from Women's Prize for Fiction nominee Clare Chambers to Bringing Back the Beaver by farmer turned ecologist Derek Now - what can I say, Burford brings you the best.
Whatever you want from your book, be it a holiday read to carry you away or a limited print run of Paul McCartney's lyrics we are here to help. Bring a coffee and loose yourself in the bookshop for an afternoon or make a mad dash and we will press a suitable book into your hand.
Love books, love bookshops
