    Full review now posted below!I love books with all of my heart. Most kids sleep with stuffed animals, but I slept with some book or another even before I could read them for myself. I was born with an intense love for words and the worlds that writers can craft with them. Because of that fervent adoration for all things books, I delight in finding books about books. Sadly though, more often than not the books-about-books that I pick up tend to leave me disappointed. There are a few exceptions, o [...]

    This is a really lovely read and I cannot think of anything I didn’t like about it. It is the story of Nina, a Librarian who is made redundant from her job in Birmingham, who starts a new life for herself by buying a van in Scotland and transforming it into a mobile bookshop.The characters are all people you just cannot help liking and Nina herself is someone you would just love to be friends with in real life. I adored the setting in the Scottish Highlands which are beautifully described, esp [...]

    The Bookshop on the corner by Jenny Colgan is a 2016 William Morrow Paperbacks publication. The title alone was enough to catch my eye. I love 'books about books' and this one will truly resonate with people like me, who live and breathe books, no matter what genre you prefer. When Nina loses her beloved job at the library, she finds the courage to start her life over using her expert skills of matching people with books. She buys a van and moves to Scotland and becomes a successful book seller. [...]

    Awww, I loved this book about a librarian getting laid off from her readers' advisory job and opening a "bookshop-on-wheels" in Scotland. A tad predictable but so what, it was a fun journey. I was a public services librarian for 42 years and a bookmobile librarian for of 17 of those years, so the thoughts about helping patrons find just the right books to read really resonated. The setting in Scotland was very appealing (as were the love interests!) and I'm ready to book a trip!The theme of rein [...]

    Okay, so you get The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan, and then you get:The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle ZevinThe Salinger Contract by Adam LangerAn Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina GeorgeThe Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore #1 by Robin SloanI just wondered what the hell happened?There's no comparison. This book is serious chick lit fluff, you know, a young jobless woman in distress, penniless and desperate t [...]

    It is definitely a book about books - and hunky Scottish men in kilts - and becoming everything you ever wanted to become if you can take the risk, and just buy the damn van, move to Scotland and get on with The Little Shop of Happy Ever After. But not QUITE my style any more, I have to say, even though I did read the Cinderella story to the end, especially since part way I realized that it was a bit of a take on that lovely old tale, Parnussus on Wheels by Christopher Morley. Nina Redmond is a [...]

    This was a sweet, though not too sweet, story about a young woman at loose ends who dreams of her own bookshop (I could identify). The story is a little predictable, but I rather enjoyed it. I have been reading a lot of crime fiction, and this was a lovely break amid the murder and mayhem!Find more reviews and bookish fun at princessandpen

    Loved all the bookshop and book talk, and that's about it. Nina was a mousy bore and clumsy idiot to boot. The only parts where she was interesting was when she was trying to change her life and was in the process of moving to rural Scotland to sell books out of a van. As soon as the love interests came on the scene, Nina lost what little charm she had and turned into a pathetic, desperate, whiny, doormat who panted between a bitter, mean, divorced mess and a married creep. The romance ruined wh [...]

    The Bookshop on the Corner is an enjoyable book that most book lovers will likely appreciate. I liked it overall but I've come to the conclusion that Jenny Colgan's fiction and I just aren't compatible for a long-term love affair. The author's message to readers at the start of this book was my favorite thing. Her love note to the art of reading and all the books in the world instantly got my attention and put a smile on my face. The story itself was likable but unfortunately not memorable or en [...]

    3 starsVery light unrestricted comical read. I ended up enjoying it more than I ever thought I would. This is the type book you pick up when you are in a reading slump or need to clean your palette after reading a number of intense books. I think it started very slow and came off as a very fluffy romance novel, however there was just seemed to be a tugging thread that kept me returning to the page. In addition to being a light read in a very fanciful script, in retrospect I see a number of socie [...]

    I have never taken much notice of the moniker - Chick-lit. Ever heard of Bloke-lit? No, neither have I. But the label Chick-lit probable puts off a lot of men from reading them and that's a pity. I came across Jenny Colgan's work through the pages of a Rosie Hopkins story and I was hooked. This latest offering from Jenny is just as enjoyable. I love books (don't we all?), I love people who love books and I have a certain envy of those who own and run a bookshop. So, how about a mobile bookshop? [...]

    The busy city of Birmingham, England closes some of their smaller libraries, and Nina loses her job. She's always had a dream of owning her own bookstore. Nina buys a van and opens a mobile bookstore in a small village in Scotland. She loves her new life in the Highlands, and opens herself to new experiences. This is an entertaining light read that romantics and book lovers will enjoy. 3.5 stars.

    I loved this book. It was one of those books that I hated to put down. Nina, is a enormous book lover and each book is special. Being a huge book lover myself, it was easy to root for Nina to be happy and successful. Nina loves to read and she buys a van and transforms it into a traveling bookstore. She moves to Scotland to start a new life after being laid off from her boring job. She takes a risk, moving to Scotland and creates her dream job. This is the first book that I have read by Jenny Co [...]

    4.5 starsA true delight to readI enjoyed the time spent reading Bookshop on the Corner immensely! Book-lovers will devour it, with the talk about books and all things bookish. It's light, well-paced, and hits you in the heart. The characters are a joy to read: fun, quirky, full of personality. Loved the setting too, makes me want to jump a plane and move to a village in Scotland. We also get to witness lots of personal growth of our heroine. Highly recommended!Side note--I think a different book [...]

    Good book about the main character following her dream. Good summer read about books, the Scottish scenery, and romance.

    Oh dear oh dear oh dear. I checked this book out from the library because it sounded kind of like my life. For me, everything changed when I had to leave my job at an independent bookstore and then when it closed down for good. I had a great memory for where each book was, often what it looked like, who wrote it, what series it was in, what order the series went in, authors' pseudonyms, and what books people might like if they liked this book or that. My favourite was giving recommendations, hel [...]

    4.5 starsNina, a book-lover, a quiet girl and a librarian in the city who does not get up to much. Then when faced with losing her job due to technology over-taking library services she decides to move to the Scottish highlands and begin to live out her fantasy of having a mobile bookshop. I must say I rooted for Nina and her new lifestyle to work out. Gosh this is such a hard book to rate because I absolutely loved the premise of the storyline but I also felt the storyline lost it’s way a cou [...]

    Dual review with Swedish first and then English!SWEDISH REVIEWÄnnu en fullträff! Efter att ha läst 2 böcker i Strandpromenadtrilogin så såg jag verkligen fram emot att läsa denna bok. Jag menar, bara titeln Den lilla bokhandeln runt hörnet är ju ljuvlig. frågan var dock, skulle denna bok vara lika charmig som Strandpromenadböckerna? Kan Nina charma mig lika mycket som Polly gjorde? Och hur ska en bok utan lunnefågeln Neil funka?Faktum är att Den lilla bokhandeln runt hörnet är en [...]

    Nina Redmond is on the cusp of losing her job at the library when they decide to close the library (the horror! Could you even imagine??) and so she decides to buy a van and create a book-mobile. This book was cute and the narrator was excellent. I really enjoyed the lighter vibe with plenty of hijinks and heartwarming moments. A little too heavy on the love story aspect that made this slightly unrealistic. I wanted more books, less sappy romantic plot lines. The book tree was by far, my favorit [...]

    You always know you are in for a real treat with a new Jenny Colgan book and this one was about a booklover who decides to run a mobile bookshop in Scotland. She travels up on a whim to look at a van for sale and a new life starts for her and all the locals in the village.I loved the sound of the village and her grumpy landlord and the barn conversion that she is renting sounds like a real dream. I wanted to move up there to browse amongst the books to find a real gem.I loved all the characters [...]

    It's so fluffy! Light, predictable, and funny in parts; the writing is not bad, but there is absolutely no depth or subtlety in the storytelling or the character development. At all. My mind wandered a lot as I read this and when I made it to the end, I was disappointed by the tidily packaged "happy-ever-after" that mimicked every ridiculous, too-quick resolution throughout the book. My most adamant criticism is the ridiculous U.S. branding of this book.

    This is what I would consider to be a beach read, with the added attraction of a tie-in with to a bookstore. (Great way to lure in and hook some readers!!) The romance element wasn't especially appealing to me, although I can understand why it might be to others. My biggest issue with the writing was characterization. The primary character, Nina, is portrayed as a librarian with a reading addiction, whose superpower is knowing exactly the right book to recommend to others. Just based on the char [...]

    Nina is my kind of heroine…to put it simply, a lover of books. She can match readers to the perfect book for them to read. This is why she makes such a wonderful librarian. Unfortunately, the library she works at in Birmingham, England is closing and a huge corporation is taking over with a media center. A job and place she would definitely not be suited to work.Overall, Nina is a quiet woman who doesn’t take risks. Now, due to necessity, things are changing. She needs a new career and job. [...]

    Книги. Шотландия. Ван. Природа. Звучи като рецептата за перфектното лятно разтоварващо четиво, нали?И така и се получи. Това е книга особено за книжни любители и такива, които въздишат по Шотландия. На няколко пъти докато четях ми се случваше мислено да възкликвам - А! Това съ [...]

    A really sweet little book - gives you a nice warm fuzzy feeling ALL OVER. The characters are sweet and quirky and --- OH MY GOD!!! I HAVE TO HAVE THAT CONVERTED BARN. I HAVE TO!!I would just love to live a life like Nina is. The St Mary Mead life or the Darrowby of All Creatures or any Agatha Christie village. (Of course in that case the murder rate might be high.)I may have to check out more of Jenny Colgan's work.

    I wanted to like this book more than I did. Some of it was great, but most of it was just ok. I liked the concept of a traveling book store. But I kept thinking the van must have a bit of the T. A. R. D. I. S. in it. I can’t figure out how she fit everything she fit into it.🤷🏼‍♀️

    First, I must say that changing the title to something that does not match the story just for the American market seems nonsensical. That being said, I love this book. I started it at 3 am when I could not sleep, and none of my current books enticed me. I found myself drawn in, and loved the characters, the framework, and especially the area in Scotland once the story became based there. A story about picking one's self up after an unforeseen change and taking the risk to make one's dream come t [...]

    That note to readers felt a bit like I was talking to myself.

    I fricken loved this book! I started reading this at 10pm, thinking, I'll give it a for chapters then sleep. Next thing I know, I've finished the book, it's 4am, the hubster is in bed and I have the biggest book hangover. I want to live in this book. Mobile bookstore in the Scottish highlands. What's not to love? This book is sweet, funny and capable of making anyone fall in love with Scotland. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    I really want to go to Scotland, live on a farm and open a book shop now.
