National Bookshop Day

It’s National Bookshop Day tomorrow (August 11, 2012).

Yes, I have a Kindle. Yes, I’ve been known to enjoy a Book Depository bargain but I do love a bookshop (and my credit card bill can attest to that). Bookshops can do one thing that Kindles and online shopping can’t do – offer you the chance to feel books, flick through the pages, read a paragraph here and there, be seduced by a pretty cover.

I’ll be making time to pop into my ‘locals’ tomorrow – Readings in Hawthorn and Tim’s Bookshop in Kew – it’s so lovely to visit book shops where the staff greet me with “Ohhh! Something has arrived that you’ll love!”

Who knows what I’ll come away with tomorrow!
