Annie and Ruth are delighted to be taking over Logie Steading Bookshop along with their lovely assistant, Gus the Sprocker. We have a hard act to follow in Helen, but are ready to embrace the challenge. Ruth has been working in the shop for a number of years and is a self-confessed bibliophile. Her main interests are novels, poetry and natural history. Annie loves photography, art and music.

We have lived locally for 10 years, having previously been nurses for people with learning disabilities in Northamptonshire.

When we’re not hanging out with books, Annie likes playing her flute and baking. Ruth is an enthusiastic drummer and occasional writer. All three of us enjoy walks in this stunning countryside, particularly if we can share them with family and friends.

We also love messing about in boats. Ruth has been known to indulge in a spot of wild swimming. Annie has not!
