FANS of late actor Matthew Perry has been snapping up his memoir from an independent book shop in Worcester.

Bored and Bookless in Friar Street has been busy packaging and parcelling Perry's book Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.

Shop manager Carol Daniels said: "It took us three days to pack and parcel all the orders.

"We must have sold about 1,300 copies."

Perry, who rose to fame on hit US sitcom Friends as the witty and sarcastic character Chandler Bing, died last month at the age of 54.

Perry released a memoir in November last year, reflecting on his battle with substance abuse and addiction, revealing that he had spent millions of dollars trying to get sober, and had been to rehab at least 15 times.

Although Bored and Bookless has sold a lot of copies of Matthew Perry's memoir online, it has been a quiet month in the store.

Mrs Daniels said: "We do well online, but it has been a bit quiet in the shop this month, we are hoping it will pick up in December.

"Town is normally quiet in November month."

Bored and Bookless was originally an online-only store but after managers enjoyed success on the internet they opened up a physical shop opposite historic Greyfriars House and Garden, the late medieval merchant's house managed by the National Trust in November last year.

The shop stocks a wide range of literature, from cookbooks to travel guides. 

Bored and Bookless is hosting a live speaking event at their shop on the Saturday of the Victorian Christmas Fayre where Worcestershire authors will be talking about their work.

The Victorian Christmas Fayre returns to Worcester on Thursday, November 30, ending on Sunday, December 3.

There will be lots of stalls throughout the city centre, traders will be selling festive goods, alongside food options and performers entertaining the crowds.
