Miss Ada Doom Reads
Miss Ada Doom works in publishing, translates from the Russian, and snarks - provided there's any time left. Mostly, she's hiding in the woodshed, reading. Every book I've listed, I've read. I don't hate-list, unless it's literally the And I Still Hate It list.

Yellow Lighted Bookshop Nailsworth
Our bookshop in Nailsworth in 2010 two years after our shop in Tetbury. It is a family business. Hereward, who started it, has worked in bookselling since the 1980s. The name is from a book, ‘The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop’, by an American called Lewis Buzbee. It’s a history of bookshops, and why they are socially, culturally and economically important. Lewis got the image from a letter than Vincent van Gogh (who had worked as a bookseller) wrote to his brother not long before he died. Van Gogh wanted to go back to Paris, and on a wet November evening, paint the yellow light of the bookshop pouring onto the street outside. We are very lucky to live and work in an amazing area, and we try to support our communities in every way we can. We are particularly interested in children’s and educational books.
