It seems that my favourite bookshop, Dulwich Books, is not only my favourite Independent Bookshop, it is also the favourite in the whole of the Great Britain and Ireland.
Owner Sheila O'Reilly and the team, went to the The Bookseller Industry Awards of the Year earlier this week. Luckily they were dressed in their best bib and tucker, for they were presented with The Independent Bookshop of the Year 2014 award for Great Britain and Ireland!
So Sheila and team, here is my contribution to add to the many congratulations you have already received.….
.…and which you thoroughly deserve.
