It's been a somewhat exciting day in the West/Key enterprise. We had a look at a very promising premises this morning. The pictures above capture accurately how ideal they are for a bookshop. .. OK, you have to use your imagination, but as Kirsty and Phil would say, it ticked a lot of boxes.
We've also been amazed at the interest we've had from several websites. I'd really like to thank Scott Pack for allowing me to write a guest piece on his lovely and very popular blog Me and my Big Mouth . This has raised the profile of this site remarkably. Maybe he is 'the most powerful man in the book trade' after all. The bookseller picked up on the story (here it is), and also our local paper the Tottenham and Wood Green Journal have our story online now. It's going to be in the paper itself tomorrow, so hopefully a few of the local residents will pick up on it.
Spent the afternoon watching rugby/phoning wholesalers/adding a Wood Green Bookshop group on Facebook, which you're all more than welcome to join.
It's also my Mum's Birthday today so can I say you're the best Mum in the world and I love you.
Also, strangely, Tim has started to sport a rather swanky cowboy hat, which he claims he wears 'to embarrass his kids'. I think he secretly wants to be the sheriff of Wood Green. I must get him a badge.
