The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

Nina Redmond is a librarian in Birmingham, England who has just been downsized.  She really doesn’t want to pursue a career free from books in the new media center but she is at a loss what to do.  So meek, quiet Nina does something her friends think is very out of character, she journeys to Scotland to take a look at a bus.  And buys it.  And moves to the Scottish Highlands to run a mobile bookstore.  And learns that while the worlds she finds within the pages of a book are grand, a life lived is so much better.

If you are a sucker for a Scottish accent you MUST listen to this book.  The reader does wonderful Scottish and English accents that really make the book come alive.  There are romantic elements to the book, and lots of references to books, but at the heart it is the story of a young woman finding her place in the world and working hard for what she loves.
