I would like to live in… Much Ado Books

I have been to City Lights in San Francisco, Shakespeare & Co in Paris, Daunts and Foyles in London, but up there among the best bookshops in the world, and the one I look forward to visiting most, is Much Ado books in Alfriston, in the sublime South Downs. It demonstrates what a bookshop is for in this era of ipad downloads, kindles & the alleged death of print… Discovery. The selection is just perfect. And to top the carefully edited choice of fiction, cookery, philosophy… comes a truly inspiring bohemian environment. This is as your house would be if the books took over, someone took the kids out for the day, all your long planned ambitions to create the perfect mis en scene magically came to fruition, the coffee began to whoosh on the stove, and you had nothing to do all day but muck about and read books. Yes, it is Heaven.
