Bibliomaniac : An Obsessive’s Tour of the Bookshops of Britain by Robin Ince

£20.00

Why play to 12,000 people when you can play to 12? In Autumn 2021, Robin Ince’s stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the pandemic. Rather than do nothing, he decided he would instead go on a tour of over a hundred bookshops, from Wigtown to Penzance; from Swansea to Margate and Colchester.    We get a mention in the book! Packed with anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac follows Robin up and down the country in his quest to discover just why he can never have enough books.

It is the story of an addiction and a romance, and also of an occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.
