Mary Ann Shaffer

“I love seeing the bookshops and meeting the booksellers-- booksellers really are a special breed. No one in their right mind would take up clerking in a bookstore for the salary, and no one in his right mind would want to own one-- the margin of profit is too small. So, it has to be a love of readers and reading that makes them do it-- along with first dibs on the new books.”


Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrow, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
