The new Bookshop Trail app was created to celebrate Edinburgh’s status as the very first UNESCO City of Literature and to provide booklovers with thorough information on fifty-three of the city’s bookstores. The helpful app covers it all from antiquarian and indie to secondhand and chain bookshops, with shop details, contacts, times, images and a locator map.
I was chuffed to find that the app features some of my favorites in Edinburgh, including Old Town Bookshop, Peter Bell Books and McNaughtan’s. Bookshop Trail also offers a need “What’s On” feature which provides timely information on literary events around town.
