Mr. Books too ugly for Kent Life Magazine?
Great piece in Kent Life's March issue about old bookshops in Kent. If you can be bothered to wade through all the property ads it starts on page 50. It has some great pictures of bookshop owners and a piece about their thoughts on books and the book trade. There's the Chaucer Bookshop in Canterbury, Baggins Book Bazaar in Rochester, Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate and The Edenbridge Bookshop. All very well and good and I'm sure they are all worthy of a mention. But, hang on, there is one notable exception, and I think you all know where I'm going with this!.... Actually Mr. Books and the Tunbridge Wells bookshops do get a small mention in the "Other bookshops in Kent" side bar. Being as the editor of the magazine is Tonbridge based then gee thanks Kent Life!...
