Buying Books

Today is, apparently, “the start of a two-week frenzy of online shopping”. I am told by persons who know such things that it is much easier to make purchases online than it was for Richard Bradley in the late 18th century trying to buy an island and having to negotiate with the Tobabmanser of Jancacunda and his singing man. Though in general I disapprove of shopping frenzies, I do think it would be a good idea for you all to go here and buy copies of all six Hooting Yard books, available in both paperback and ebook formats. They do, after all, make the perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones.

  • That is exactly what I insinuated to Mrs B who duly purchased said 6 books for my crimble pressie. She is unused to receiving a ‘thank you’ e-mail from the author however and was somewhat bemused.

    Apparently, after last weeks post Thanksgiving ‘Black Friday’ shopping frenzy, today has been designated as ‘Cyber Monday’ for some reason that remains unclear to me. So for my contribution I shall be buying as many Cybermen as I can lay hands upon.

  • Banished : Mrs B is obviously a very wise woman. Tell her not to fret about the ‘thank you’ email, automatically generated by the people at Lulu (though composed by me).
