We make our own fun in the bookshop world.

A lady has just asked me for a book called "The Roehampton Mystery". She was very vague. She wasn't sure what it was about, and she definitely hadn't a clue who wrote it. She had been recommended it by a friend. When she said, after some minutes of vain debate, that she thought it might be about India, the penny dropped. She left with a lovely copy of Rohinton Mistry's "A Fine Balance". We DO provide a service to the community that the internet simply can't match...
