Just back from the Gothenburg bookfair which was terrific, we got to meet many lovely customers and also were priviliged to spend time with a lot of authors such as Ingrid Betancourt, Jenny Valentine, Paul Muldoon, Colm Toibin... The list goes on - pictures at our Facebook page! We then came home to Swecon 2012 and did signings with Joe Abercrombie, Kelly Link, Peter Watts and Caitlin Sweet! Again - pictures on our facebook page.

This Friday we’re doing a signing with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie! It’s not in the shop but at the Nordic Africa Institute in town. It’s been an amazing author period for us!

The Swedish book blogosphere is going to be a very lonely – or at least singular-minded – place for the upcoming few days, as everyone is headed for the Gothenburg book fair. Everyone, it seems, but me. I could be moping in bed with a pint of Häagendasz and a particularly blood curdling crime novel (I have two words for you: S.J. Bolton!) but instead I thought I'd give all you lucky people who are in fact going some pointers in terms of book shopping. Here's a list of the books you mustn't miss at the book fair.

News for September!

Another great reading period is upon us. How quickly we moved into autumn! We’ve just had a wonderful Culture Night with the shop packed with literature lovers and authors. If you missed it you can watch the videos now posted on our web site www.bookshop.se!

Books of the Month for September! Our freshest choices!

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

in
A heartwarming and endearing book about recent OAP Harold Fry, who one day gets a letter from an old friend saying she's dying of cancer in Berick-upon-Tweed. Struck by this he goes down the road to post a letter, and then just continues to walk, thinking that as long as he's walking to see her, she will not die. He has no proper walking shoes, no maps, no compass, no waterproof clothes, just a will to see Queenie Hennesy again, talk to her, and to save her life. This is the story of Harold Fry, of his wife, and son, of Queenie, who is dying, and of all the people Harold meets along his way from the very south of England up to Berwick.

Beat Thing! – Film from the Culture evening at the Bookshop

As always, a wonderful, buoyant performance by these luminaries joined by Olle on double bass and Jan on swedish haiku. What a treat!
