Guys, I had a great day on National Bookshop Day! Many thanks to the fabulous team at Better Read than Dead, especially Amelia, in Newtown for talking me through the till, to those customers who were so patient with me, and to my friends and family (and editors!) that came along to support a great cause. There’s nothing like being behind the counter. I had forgotten the thrill of seeing what people are buying; what’s hot and garnering many ideas for my own shelves. As Meg Ryan’s character says so famously in You’ve Got Mail – ‘Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies.’… National Bookshop Day in August does just that….’Don’t you love bookshops in the winter? It makes me want to buy many, many, many books….’ Happy reading, everyone!
Nothing beats payment for a review like cupcakes. And everyone needs a support team as good as this!
Hamming it up behind the counter. I left my Hogwarts uniform at home.
