In 2021 when Robin Ince’s arena tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the pandemic he decided to go on tour over 100 bookshops in the UK. Why play to 12 000 when you can play 12? Robin will now be taking readers on the journey in his new book Bibliomaniac and to celebrate he plans on visiting even more bookshops this time.
