I have started The Diary of a Bookseller (2017) by Shaun Bythell, which is exactly what the title promises. The author owns a used bookstore in Scotland, and this volume records his day-by-day experiences. I also have a couple of books by the same author on the same subject. So far, it can be summed up as proof positive that you don't want to be a bookseller, given the precarious financial aspects and the many annoying aspects of both employees and customers.
I take it that you liked the troublesome life of a bookseller. (Is it perchance based on a real life situation?)I have now started Confessions of a Bookseller (2019) by the same author, which has the exact same format consisting of a day-by-day account of a year dealing with the eccentricities of workers and consumers.
No, I'm afraid I don't think you are missing anything. I am aware that there are some here who love these books so I will restrict myself to pointing to my comments in the reviews sub forum.All Systems Red by Martha Wells

(Apologies for the boldness - can't seem to turn it off!)
A somewhat overpriced Novella that you could read in 2 hours. I'm surprised this has garnered such lavish praise as I can't find too much to redeem it so far. Not too fond of the writing style, and it seems a little trivial. "The Murderbot Diaries" seems like a title cooked up by a YA random title generator. Characters are unmemorable and, bar a few funny lines here and there, it's a bit of a slog to get through. What am I missing, here?
