The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

In the Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, Buzbee, a former bookseller and sales representative, celebrates the unique experience of the bookstore- the smell and touch of books, the joy of getting lost in the deep canyons of of shelves, and the silent community of readers. He shares his passion for books, which began with ordering through the Weekly Reader in grade school. Woven throughout a fascinating historical account of the bookseller trade- from the great Alexandaria library with an estimated on million papyrus scrolls to Sylvia Beach’s famous Paris bookstore, Shakespeare & Co., that led to the extraordinary effort to publish and sell James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Rich with anecdotes, The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop is the perfect choice for those who relish the enduring pleasure of spending an afternoon finding just the right book.

Perfect for any bookworm. In this incredible book, you get to discover the history of bookstores along with the experience of being both a bookseller and buying books. I would highly recommend it to any bookworm. I rarely come across nonfiction books I love, but due to being a bookworm, I really loved this book.
