SPINNENS BOOK is pervading by a deep love for the book as a phenomenon of tradition and culture. The scottish author Shaun Bythell has a different starting point. In the autobiographical novel "A bokhandlers diary" (Gursli Berg), he tells how his life changed after he bought a blåfrossent and crowded city in the scottish town of Wigtown. The book follows a year in the store's business. A most enjoyable description of the customers, purchasing, sales and surr, in a relentless pursuit of the strangest books. Bythell describes the tension many of us feel when we are faced with a mixed assortiment of used books, for example, at a flea market: "When I go to a house to buy books, I have an expectation that is not similar to any other.
