What is a book spa? I first came across this idea at a local independent bookshop ‘Mr B’s Emporium’ in Bath. They advertise ‘reading spas’ and I bought one for my mother as a birthday present. You go along, get plied with drink and cake, and discuss your favourite books with your ‘bibliotherapist’. They then hand you a massive stack of books and introduce them to you, whilst you sit back and relax.
