AKA Showcase Sunday
We went for a little book shopping session in Ringwood yesterday as Josh had decided he wanted to read High-Rise by JG Ballard after seeing a documentary. Of course, it had to be out of print, lots of re-sellers taking the biscuit with price and the one that wasn’t expensive cancelled our order because they “couldn’t find the book”. However, it turned out the last remaining copy was residing in Ringwood Waterstones of all places. So we went for a walk round the town, which I’d never been to before, and also popped in their indie bookshop, Paperview, which is sadly closing down. That did mean they have 50% off everything, and Josh technically bought twice as many books as me. I am training him well.
I’m pretty impressed by my restraint these past few weeks, as I’ve been in several bookshops and to a blogger event. The postie does still insist on bringing me book-shaped post though…
