Finally managed to get some work experience and I’m volunteering at News From Nowhere bookshop on Bold Street and I’m so excited!

It’s such a cute shop with so many different genres of books and I can’t wait to find out more about them and how the store works. It’ll be such a different environment from my part-time job at PC World, hopefully less pressure and a relaxed atmosphere. I hope that from volunteering here I can understand more about independent bookshops, maybe how they’re dealing with larger chains like Waterstones and if they have noticed any changes since the development of e-books and e-readers.

Happy days..
