World Book Day 2014

It is World Book Day on April the 23rd and we will send you all (loyalty members) a voucher to use at your local Wordsworth to get a little something off that celebratory purchase.

There are two things that is impossible for almost every bookseller to do. The first is to walk past a bookshop – independent, part of a chain, selling second-hand or new books – without going inside.

The second is, once inside, not to walk around tidying the shelves and checking that all is in alphabetical order. Sure, it is a compulsion, but it can lead to some interesting encounters… like the one I had the other day when I was caught rearranging bookmarks in a small bookstore just outside of Cape Town.

The owner came up to me and, without a word, handed me a book – The Rosie Project – about an obsessive compulsive professor who discovers that love is not something that is so easy to classify or quantify. I thoroughly recommend it.
