Bookshops: A Reader's History reviewed in the National Post
From the review:
Carrión opens his book by stating, “Every bookshop is a condensed version of the world.” If that’s the case, then his book itself is a condensed version of many worlds, waiting to be unpacked. Quick to capture the feel of each store, Carrión’s extensive knowledge enables him to contextualize its place in the bookstores continuum. An exceptionally readable journey to the birth of the printed word, this is a book that bibliophiles will love to read and share.
