It's Lockdown at The Secondhand Bookworm, a winding rickety old bookshop with three floors, endless rooms, hallways, shelves, cases, stairs, attic, kitchen and yard bursting at the seams with books upon books upon books, and more books! The bookshop has had to close for the unforeseeable future due to the global outbreak of an ancient virus so the manager, Nora Jolly, has prepared the shop, locked it up and relocated herself up the hill, through the castle gates and into guest quarters at the magnificent sprawling home of Castletown's very own royal resident, James, the Duke of Cole. But it doesn't mean all things bookshop, bookselling, bookworms and book customers is at an end. Unlikely!
As the weeks unfold and turn into months, Nora invents a range of delicious quarantinis, partakes in chaotic bookshop Zoom meetings, hosts online book clubs, discovers a great toilet roll robbery, livestreams from the castle, admires Humphrey's new muscles, flees Harry's exercise regimes, sympathises with Miss Raven's terror, debunks Zombie donkeys, encounters Dora Magic and her suspicious new novels, sets up a mobile bookshop taskforce, survives a bookworm contagion, endures Spencer's survival plan, enjoys the Duke of Cole's case of basorexia and much, much more, all amidst Milton's TikTok success, a grand bookshop cleaning undertaking, a new craze in hand sanitizer, crazy mask-wearing locals, enormous book cleaning stations, a deepening royal romance and a plan to coax people back into the bookshop as Nora and her bookshop colleagues survive the Lockdown and reopen The Secondhand Bookworm to a brave new world.
It’s another delightful adventure at the county of Cole’s most eccentric bookshop in book nine of The Secondhand Bookworm series of novels
