Inkwell Michelle's 30 Second Book Review

The King’s English: Adventures of an Independent Bookseller
by Betsy Burton

This book is sure to delight the kind of person who can’t pass by a bookstore without stopping to browse. The King’s English is the name of an independent bookstore owned by Betsy Burton. Although subtitled “Adventures of an independent bookseller,” it goes far beyond the business of selling books. Betsy’s intrepid spirit sparkles in this funny and thoughtful memoir of a life surrounded and inspired by books. Her passion for literature is contagious. The reading lists at the back of the book are worth more than the price of the whole book!
