We particularly love the cat runs (along the wall, above the shelves, across the ceiling) and the cats (most of the cats are available for adoption!). Well organized inventory; helpful staff. Many nooks for undisturbed browsing. Reasonable rates. If you have a favorite book, you can, for a price, include its title on the spine of a book in the mural that wraps around the building! https://www.cupboardmaker.com/(less)
It goes without saying that any book about books will appeal to me. A bookshop with a regular clientele, each with their own story, a few well- guarded secrets, and a healthy dose of sweet romance and you have an irresistible combination.

"Books told you things, everything you needed to know, but you didn't talk back to them."
When I started reading this book, I felt a little disappointed because I couldn't connect to the story or the characters. But as I read on, it turned out to be much more than I expected. I devoured the story and I loved it! I was feeling quite low and was going into a teeny tiny reading slump - every reader's nightmare of course, but this was just so uplifting! It made me smile and gave me some go ...more
"The whole point of life was you couldn't ever be sure what would happen next. Sometimes what happened was good, sometimes not, but there were always surprises."
This was a delightful, confectionary read! Such an immense joy to read. I don't generally pick up romancey novels, but I love a good romantic angle in my literary and classic fiction. This had all the feels, and I do mean all, because it centered around a bookshop at the center of a small village in the Cotswolds. Literary references an ...more
Who could resist a book with a title like this? Certainly not me. I fell in love with this book from the first page of the prologue set in 1983. And when Emilia is sitting at her father’s bedside while he is dying 32 years later, I was right there with tears in my eyes too. The description of a daughter’s grief upon the death of a much loved parent was one I could all too readily associate with. Julius Nightingale had owned and run Nightingale Books in the Cotswold town of ...more

In this book, a small bookshop place the main role. Every character in this book has some connection with the little shop, that sounds like heaven on earth.

This story is a delightful read. It is a story about a secret love but also family love and finding love when you least expect it. Most of the story is set in a small town and the characters revolve aroun ...more

And with that, I dipped my toes into the Prologue and came across this beautiful passage which charmed me immediately.
I have to be absolutely honest. I don't read cozy fiction very often, so "How to Find Love in a Book Shop" is a bit of an outlier for me. But I found it quite charming and easy to read.
When her father passes away, Emilia finds herself the new owner of Nightingale Books, the only bookstore in small town Peasebrook. The bookstore is more than just a commodity, it's a place full of secrets, dreams, and love. The patrons are wistful and pleasant, and their sto ...more

Aan het begin was het een beetje moeilijk om in het verhaal te komen. Je hebt het verhaal van Julius, maar ook van zn dochter Emilia. Daarnaast ook nog het verhaal van June, Jackson, Marlowe, Sarah, Thomasina, Alice en Dillon. Zoals je ziet zijn er genoeg personages en ik wist niet meer precies wie nou wie was.
Maar na de eerste helft werd het beter. Ik herkende de namen ...more

It's possible to score the movie that this book will engender just from the mentions of music in the text. Joni Mitchell all the way to dreary, stolid Elgar by way of the inimitable, ineffable Saint-Saëns "The Swan" on cello.

U mojim maštanjima, knjižara bi bila okupljalište pravih ljubitelja knjiga, koji bi svakodnevno dolazili i razmjenjivali utiske o knjigama koje su pročitali ili jednostavno dolazili tražiti savjet koju knjigu sljedeće d ...more
The writing, the characters, the story; they were all very well done. I felt all warm inside and so good and cozy as I finished the last page, thus the five star rating.
The wonderful little idyllic town of Peasebrook sounds truly magical and somewhere that in my wildest dreams, I’d like to live. The Nightingale Bookshop is a quaint place I would just love to visit and shop at and maybe even work at!
The people here all know each other and come togeth ...more
Spoiler alert, although with such a quaint cover I don't think this is much of a spoiler, this book has multiple happy endings. Yet, the melancholy is overpowering. If the author's intent is to illustrate how life is the balance of love and death and the rel ...more
