About BookLovers of Bath

BookLovers of Bath is set in the pastoral idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God’s Own Country) in the south west of England. My wife and I owned the village Post Office until the modern world caught up with us in 2014.

I’ve been selling books worldwide since 1997 and rather hope to get the hang of it shortly…
