Back in April I noted that Wenlock Books had been shortlisted for Independent Bookseller of the Year at the British Book Trade Awards. Well, they won.

The bookshop (with which I have no connection other than in the name) has been getting quite a lot of good press recently. I see that theguardian used the groanworthy headline "Much ado about Wenlock" for an article about them back in March. They are also featured in yesterday's piece on independent bookshops that are bucking the trend of discounting and closure that has been too much in the news over the last few weeks.

That feature should be cheering news also for Mark and Nicki at Mostly Books, coming soon to Abingdon.
