Our latest interview is with Tyona Campbell, owner of Barnabees, a very special secondhand bookshop tucked away in the small Suffolk village of Westleton.
Tyona tells us how her shop is in a small way a protest against the data-gathering online giants, why in her shop the books they find you, and why books benefit from being coddled and canoodled. She also has a couple of great recommendations for your next book club book.
- The Diary of a Bookseller and Confessions of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell
- Vurt and Pollen by Jeff Noon
- We by Yevgeni Zemyatin
You can shop at Barnabees on Etsy, or find Ty on Instagram @barnabeesbooks, and if you want to visit in person the shop is located on the Yoxford Road in Westleton, IP17 2AF. It’s open Thursday–Sunday 11am–5pm.
When you buy books from bookshop.org you are supporting local bookshops, and supporting us.
