In need of a tasty treat

It’s been an odd week, more than likely because the routine was thrown out of the window due to attending the British Book Awards on Monday and travelling home Tuesday. It’s meant things have had to be juggled about a… Continue Reading →

The Monopoly on incompetence!

There are many awkward and antiquated things in the book industry, from product classification to the enormous size of hardbacks (apart from ours, of course!), but nothing, and I repeat, nothing, comes close to the incompetence of Amazon when it… Continue Reading →

It’s nearly time…
