Phil: I’m running out of books to read.
Fortunately, a couple of local bookshops have been tweeting for support and promising local deliveries.
At the same time, I spotted that Edd China – Grease Monkey was appearing in paperback. A quick e-mail followed by some money transfer and the order was placed. A week later, a knock on the front door and a paper bag containing the book appeared. The seller being suitably distanced by the time I picked it up. Thank you Warwick Books.
These are really tough times for small shops and those selling books will find it harder than most. Need something to read? Amazon is waiting…
A couple of second-hand bookshops are offering lucky dip selections. You tell them the genre you want, they will pick a boxful for you and deliver or post. A clever idea and one that could see readers discover new writers they will love in the future.
(Incidentally, if you’d like my review of the book, it’s here)
