INDEPENDENT booksellers are opening their third shop.

Andy and Victoria Rossiter run two book shops in Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth called Rossiter Books already and will open their third branch in Drapers Lane in Leominster in the next few weeks.

Trading in Ross since 2010 and Monmouth since late 2011, the family-run business focuses on delivering a range of carefully selected books, and recruits booksellers who are both passionate about reading and about sharing that love with customers.

They also run author events - in the coming months Ian Rankin, Owen Sheers, Prue Leith and Anton du Beke are booked to appear. They plan to book authors at Leominster too.
