‘Our small but charming shop is as romantic as British bookshops get and has witnessed many tender moments. My favourite example is the e-mail from a customer in Washington that began ‘May I Propose to my Girlfriend in Your Bookstore?’ A few weeks later the lady in question innocently pulled a copy of The Great Gatsby from our shelves to find a written declaration of love from her beau inside. She turned to find him on one knee. Happily, he was accepted. Tears, and champagne, soon flowed.’ - Nicky Dunne, Bookseller
