Meet our team of booklovers...

Always happy to help and heavily powered by tea, biscuits, high fives and dog cuddles!

for both James Thin and
the Edinburgh International Book Festival. She also used to sell beer but is now much happier with a pile of books and a cup of tea!

scifi connoisseur
with a
love of excoriating puns.

a book tidying ninja!

Steph for Website.jpeg

our Erasmus scholar who never left. A Parisienne
who prefers Edinburgh, she is a big fan of YA books and works hard to keep her cats away from her jigsaws and in the luxury they expect.

Miss Betty

the most unruly member of our bookshop team, and
like the rest of us is partial
to biscuits and tea (although she prefers her tea cold). She's also very keen on licking ears.
