Plot summary[ edit ] The narrative begins with a young advertising man, Aubrey Gilbert, stopping by a bookstore named "The Haunted Bookshop" in the hopes of finding a new client. The young man had heard of none of these books prescribed by the practitioner of bibliotherapy. Now, if an actual bookstore visit is not feasible, then reading about a bookstore The haunted bookshop book be second-best.

The flavor is complex, alluring, and It is a tale for booklovers who long for the days when one could peruse well-used books in incandescent light, without annoying "music" competing for the attention. And let me tell you that the book business is different from other trades.

The people who are doing my advertising are Stevenson, Browning, Conrad and Company. Do you know why people are reading more books now than ever before?

Malnutrition of the reading faculty is a serious thing. When Gilbert returns with a lost and found ad for the book placed, not by Mifflin, but by a chef at a nearby hotel, a chef Gilbert had run into, holding the book he had advertised as lost, the mystery deepens as they puzzle over what could be going on.

Incidentally, I only realised after finishing The Haunted Bookshop that it was published in It also provides a nice nicotine kick when I want something stronger than the usual fair.

He was a charming companion, and one with whom I can spend some more time in Parnassus on Wheels. I have yet to lay my hands on a copy of that particular book, sad to say. It has more of a suspenseful plot, involving a young advertising agent, a beautiful young woman learning about the business of selling books, various shady characters, and some suspicious disappearances and reappearances of an old copy of Letters and Speeches of Oliver Cromwell.

It's a fun read just because of the commentary on the books - the plot seems secondary, although it's nice to spend the second half chasing around after German plotters.

The little baldheaded man was smoking a corn-cob pipe and reading a cook-book. The "action" part was a little contrived, but still fun. The visitor found himself ushered into a small room on the left, where a grate of coals glowed under a dingy mantelpiece of yellowish marble. A pleasant smoke.

I always try to have a guest for supper when my wife is away. More details. Bag note was plain and cheap. So, she is left with taking help from none other than her friendly ghost Jack Shepard.The Haunted Bookshop, so named because the owner is haunted by all the books he hasn't read (I can identify, Dude) has lost track of a book.

He is happy someone loved If you go to this book looking for ghosts you'll be disappointed but if you go to it looking for humor, a mystery and interesting characters straight out of the end of WWI then /5.
