Welcome to my bookshop

It's a bookshop, just the way you like it. Secondhand/new, a jumble of treasures. I also work for a treasure... Ruth. Been running the place since the late 60s. The woman knows everything in her quiet way. She leads me to new knowledges every day I'm there. From Armenian children being rescued by Bedouins after the genocide, to undocumented (in the process of being documented) unique languages alive and well in North Cyprus. We've started the Moufflon blog (yes, another one - I just can't help myself) here. I've been interviewing artists and authors who frequent the shop. Expect to see more soon.
