Bookshops at Night

Return of an old favourite – The Joy of Books

Image 5What happens in a bookshop at night when everyone goes home?

Check out what happens when you visit Type Books in Ontario, Canada. Could it happen in your high street too?

Maybe it happens in your own house on the bookshelves, when you are fast asleep…..

Start being creative and have fun, learning too with ideas for children and for adults.

Take two minutes out to watch the video on Dolphin Booksellers. W’er about to have a page for short book videos too. Maybe even a visit to our online anytime book shop and buy a new book, whilst Spring is just about to happen.

East of the Sun and West of the Moon

567A most beautiful story,from Jackie Morris with her wonderful illustrations of a polar bear, forests, skies and seas. A story, which Jackie describes as…

” …there are some stories that when you hear them for the very first time it is as if you know them, as they are part of your soul. You then spend the rest of your life trying to understand them…. It is a journey, an adventure, a love story that in the writing took an unexpected turn.”


It is a magical story and a book to treasure and return to. It will make you go back to it and try and relive the story or find yourself as the girl seeking through all the winds to find her lost love in the castle east of the sun and west of the moon.

Published by Frances Lincoln the book is available via this Amazon link. The format of the book is wonderful with a neat hardcover. It’s a book for a present and especially for yourself too, a treat and a joy.

Jackie lives in a small house by the sea in Pembrokeshire where she writes and paints. She has a range of wonderful books, such as The Snow Leopard and Can You See a Little Bear?  Jackie’s website is a dream and is worth hours of exploring.

There is a competition to win the necklace from East of the Sun, West of the Moon on Jackie’s blog.
