About the Books:

Book 1

Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books 

Dear Reader is a moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, packed with recommendations from one reader to another.

For as long as she can remember, Cathy Rentzenbrink has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up she was rarely seen without her nose in a book and read in secret long after lights out. When tragedy struck, books kept her afloat. Eventually they lit the way to a new path, first as a bookseller and then as a writer. No matter what the future holds, reading will always help.

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Last Act of Love.

'A love letter to stories and reading . . . a book to cherish' - Nina Stibbe, author of Love, Nina

 

About the Author

Cathy Rentzenbrink was born in Cornwall, grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in London, where she works as a writer and journalist. She is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling memoir The Last Act of Love, which was shortlisted for the Welcome Book Prize.

Book 2

The Bookseller's Tale

The right book has a neverendingness, and so does the right bookshop.' This is the curious story of our long love affair with books. Whether comfort reads or cult novels, we carry them with us, inhale the smell of their pages, scrawl in their margins, and protect them from book thieves and bathwater. Despite the many enemies of reading - from poverty to prejudice, from the Spanish Inquisition to Orwellian regimes - its power has endured across centuries.

This is partly thanks to people like Martin Latham, the longest-serving Waterstones manager ('it's not a career, it's a philosophic path'). in a bookseller's tale, Martin uncovers the history of our collective book-obsession, and introduces us to the Canterbury bookshop that has been his working home for three decades, complete at various points with two rocking horses, a hammock for Staff naps and an excavated Roman bath-house floor.

Along the way, we encounter itinerant book peddlers, smugglers, obsessive collectors, librarians, miners, Rabelaisian monks and the rolling stones. Part cultural history, part literary love letter and Part reluctant memoir, this is the tale of one bookseller and many, many books.

 

About the Author

Martin Latham has been a bookseller for thirty-five years. He has a PhD in Indian history, and taught at Hertfordshire University before turning to bookselling. He is proud to be responsible for the biggest petty-cash claim in Waterstones' history, when he paid for the excavation of a Roman bath-house floor under his bookshop. Martin's other books include Kent's Strangest Tales and Londonopolis.
