On our blog: One Great Reader
An Interview Series for Book/Shop
Publishing veteran Wes Del Val likes good books, knows interesting people, and asks great questions. These three things come together brilliantly in this new interview series for our blog, The Book/Shop Journal. Check back every Sunday for our latest installment.
Announcing Librarie Haydée, our new collaboration with Paris-based poet, writer, and editor Haydée Touitou. Vintage books by French authors chosen by Haydée, along with handwritten poems, notepads, posters, pins & other treats that celebrate witing and reading. Visit our shop in Oakland or buy online.
Join the Penguin Collectors Society
You can now join the Penguin Collectors Society through Book/Shop. Based in London, where it was founded in 1973, the Society continues to produce a top-quality newsletter, The Penguin Collector, and other outstanding publications. A wonderful club for anyone who, like us, can never resist the allure of those orange-colored spines when we find them in used bookstores.
