Want to branch out from your favourite authors but not sure where to start? Having trouble locating the perfect gift for that finicky aunt who only reads hardboiled crime novels written between 1934-1938? Struggling to find a picture book that represents alternative families? Just desperately trying to recall the title of a book you once saw in a shop window, but all you can remember was a vague idea of the plot and that the cover was green?
Have no fear, the Book Doctors are in. Or they will be on June 30th at Blackwell’s Bookshop, Charing Cross Road. We’ve assembled a dedicated team of literary experts whose specialist knowledge is available to anyone who has a question about books. We love talking to people about books and we love recommending new ones. We’re friendly, highly qualified and listen to our customers. We help people select books that might just change their lives. Or at least please a pernickety relative.
The Book Doctors will be consulting all day at the Charing Cross Road Festival 2012 as part of the Love Charing Cross Road project. We’ll be easy to spot in our white coats and scrubs, roaming the street and the shop for potential patients. Come and challenge us with your most difficult book requests!
