This is a sort of magical golden rule of bookselling.You don't necessarily have to have read thousands of books (although in London I sell books alongside Jon, who somehow has read every single book that a customer brings up to him), even selling a book you'd like to read, or picked out because it sounded interesting, is easy.Owning a bookshop may seem a natural and attractive proposition if you love and have a great knowledge of books.

The lack of a permanent space often feels like I don't have much to go by, that my business lacks a tangibility.

The words "I own a bookshop" still sit uncomfortably on my tongue as I'm not able to point people in the direction of said shop.

But actually, I have a registered business, a business that broke even within a few months of trading, I have a growing stock and books I know to be my bestsellers and I even have returning customers and "regulars".

Surely, in the twenty-first century, a bookshop can exist outside of a conventional four-walls space.

While you might end up spending a lot of time explaining to people that “there is no permanent shop”, you shouldn’t have to feel that there’s an abyss separating your work from that of any fine, well-established bookshop.

I always try to look at it as being all in the simple gesture of one book passing from a bookseller’s hands to that of a reader, and it doesn’t need to be much more complicated than that.

Maybe I am someone who can offer some advice as to how to go about setting up a pop-up bookshop.

In reply to Rachel's email, here's what I've learnt so far: Readers, book lovers, poets, performers and writers will all move within the same circles, especially within one city or town.

Recently, someone emailed me to ask for advice on starting a bookshop business.

At first this seemed absurd to me, for who am I to give people advice on how to start a bookshop, when I don't actually have a bookshop myself?
