The Bookshop That Floated Away

Well done to this intrepid adventurer.  Living the dream.   :thumb: 

This book is definitely on my reading list.

Fed up with city life, Sarah Henshaw quit her job as an entertainment journalist in London and went in search of something different.

In June 2009 she bought a narrow boat and began fitting it out as a book shop called The Book Barge.

All went well initially, but the effect of the economic downturn and intense competition from online retailers meant hard times were to follow.

Sarah has now published a book about her adventures on Britain's canals The Bookshop That Floated Away.
