 Guest Book

 

Love visiting your shop. Warm, friendly staff that not only know the stock well, but love the books! What a difference it makes to talk to someone about what you might like to read, to be shown a comfy seat and brought a selection to flick through. It turns buying a book into a lovely experience!

Great shop and service
I was given a £50 book token after doing a talk abut shopping local at an independent book retailers conference in Glasgow this year. Keeping in the theme of shopping locally there was no way I was going to blow my book vouchers on a high street chain. I met Chris and Sue at the conference that day and have used up my vouchers now through this fantastic little book shop in Biggar. Its a 30 mile round journey for me but worth every mile for the personal service given. Thanks Chris and Sue and I look forward to picking up my next two books soon. Regards Jim

Book enquiry
Whilst having a restful sojourn in Biggar, I watched a DVD that I purchased in the local charity shop. It was Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray, I loved the film and have read some of Wilde's plays and poems, I had never read his only novel.
Where on earth will I get a copy in Biggar I thought to myself. I popped into Atkinson-Pryce Books and asked if they had a copy, it was out of stock but the delightful lady in the shop asked if I was in Biggar for a few days to which I answered yes.
Well cut to the chase a wonderful copy was selected with the most appropriate of book covers.
I was phoned the following day the book was at the shop waiting for me.
Exceptional service, passion for literature and such friendly people. I love your shop and will most surely be back.
Kind regards,
Kenneth

Fair Helen - Book of the Moment
Dear A-P (Biggar Little Bookshop) - I'm touched, encouraged, well chuffed that you have my 'Fair Helen' novel as your BoM! It's such a Borders book that doing events and having it visible in Biggar seems so right - Rachel Newton's singing of the source ballad 'Fair Helen of Kirkconnel' still makes me shiver.
Thanks so for your support and enthusiasm over the years - it means a lot. It's where books really happen, in those personal relationships.
Cheers - Andrew Greig

thank you!
I love the photo with my crown of books!

Thank you so much for hosting me at your lovely bookshop on Saturday, and thank you, too, for selecting A Tale for the Time Being as your Book of the Moment! It's such a lovely name, "Book of the Moment", and it reminds me of of the ancient Zen teaching about time and moments in the novel. Perfect!

Thanks for coming!... and for the lovely words. We shall now view our "Book of the Moment" in a slightly altered way... It was a pleasure to meet you and spend some time hearing about A Tale for the Time Being.
