Nora works in ‘The Secondhand Bookworm’ – a cosy, winding, labyrinth of a shop with room, upon room, upon room of used and antiquarian books. The week starts normally enough, with a visit from the notorious Ravens (two infamous ladies who leave a deluge of carrier bags behind the counter and argue in whispers), a man who changes his fashion with his literary tastes, a stranded seagull and the remains of the villainous Map-Boy.

But as the days pass Nora finds herself battling torrential rain and sandbags, mad Mr Hill who sells his books only to buy them back the next day, an erratic daytime soap actor, a paranoid Polish Count, old ladies en mass waving postcards and demanding stamps, the local Ghostbuster, someone determined to sell his dog-sick covered books and much, much more. And then there’s Humphrey.

It’s an ordinary week in the life of a second hand bookshop.  

This book is also available to purchase on Kindle via Amazon.


Emily Jane Bevans lives in Sussex, England. For ten years she worked in and helped to manage a family chain of secondhand and antiquarian bookshops. The Secondhand Bookworm is her debut novel.
