We found love in an old book place*

Kit Allen


This week, we launched a slightly refreshed WordPress retrofit for the local legends at The Bookshop in Wigtown. (For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of visiting this establishment, it’s like a real-life Black Books, but bigger. And with more wine. The Bookshop Facebook page gives an excellent flavour of the place).

Half-ten? Half-ten? I've never been up at half-ten! What happens?

We relaunched the site to coincide with Jessica Fox’s latest book launch, ‘Three Things You Need To Know About Rockets‘. We’d read a bit about it, so we knew that it was a memoir on how she found her way to Wigtown from working with NASA in LA.

What we didn’t know, though, until we read it in the Guardian this weekend, was that the journey, and indeed the story, started with Jessica  Googling ‘used bookshop Scotland‘. And The Bookshop being the first on the list.

So – it appears that as well as doing great SEO, we now qualify as matchmakers too. Hoorah! Though apparently we can’t claim royalties from the book.

*Authors note: I’m truly sorry for the dreadful, dreadful pun. Fun fact, though: Calvin Harris stated in a Q interview that the Hopeless Place in question was, in fact, Jumpin’ Jaks in Dumfries. Have to agree with him there.
