This year's limited edition bag is designed by Yehrin Tong for Bookshop Day on Saturday 5th October. Yehrin won the Beautiful Book Award in the 2018 Readers Awards for the Virago Modern Classics 40th Anniversary series. The bag is available exclusively from bookshops up and down the country and we have 10 to give away alongside Shaun Bythell's The Diary of a Bookseller and Confessions of a Bookseller, a classic Books Are My Bag tote, and a £20/€25 National Book Token to spend in your favourite bookshop.
Shaun Bythell is the owner of The Bookshop in Wigtown, Scotland. With more than a mile of shelving, real log fires and the sea lapping nearby, the shop should be an idyll for bookworms. Unfortunately, Shaun also has to contend with bizarre requests from people who don't understand what a shop is. The Diary of a Bookseller (soon to be a major TV series) introduced us to the joys and frustrations of life lived in books. Confessions of a Bookseller will reunite readers with the characters they've come to know and love.
