A man who has worked in some of London’s best old bookstores writes about what a good bookstore should feel like. ’’I want dirt. I want chaos. I want, above all, mystery,’’ he says. ‘’I want to be able to step into a place and have the sense that there I’ll find a book, as yet unknown to me, which to some degree will change my life.’’
I think that is a hope we all have. What would such a book be like, according to your need?
