My camera is at home, and my computer works. Which means I can download all those photos from the last week or so of the shop.
Here is a pretty window that I did of Crime Week. Isn't it pretty.....yes pretty.
Now here are some photos from the remnants of our facebook party in the shop on Saturday. As mentioned before we wanted to thank all those people who have supported us from the begining, especially those of you who helped us build the shop when we got the keys.
Well here is some of the debris from the evening.
THE MANAGEMENT. (god help us all)
Two of our loyal supporters, Mark Farley (bookseller to the stars, erotic fiction novelist, and all round good egg), and Kelly Arnstein (I don't think she writes erotic fiction, but she's definitely a good egg)
My good good friend Alister. Mark leave Alister's nipples alone
Lauren Ace, a legend in the world of childrens' publishing came along. Oh, hello Mark...
My lovely Katie was also there, 8 months and 24 days pregnant, and more gorgeous than ever. Here she is with the fab Heather
Friend and local legend Laurie Owen, who Wood Green owes a huge debt of gratitide for all his work and energy in keeping it a wonderful place. He's here holding 'The Wood Green Audit', which documents how Wood Green should be.
Trouble broke out between Phil and Tim about how to spell Nietzsche,, but the night was great fun.
Hurrah for everyone, thanks for coming.
We have just sorted out an event in August for this gentleman
Yes, it's Haruki Murakami
No it isn't is it. It's the magnificent Levi Roots and he'll be joining us on August 9th for a barbecue and a sing song. See you then Levi.
Tomorrow (Thursday) we have a first in Wood Green, as far as i'm aware. Tim Saunders is one of the most important figures in the modern revival of the Cornish language and the best-known poet writing in the language. He has also edited a number of anthologies of Cornish literature. Tim will be reading from his collection The High Tide, available on the night at only £9.99. He will also be reading poems in Cornish from the anthologies The Wheel and Nothing Broken.
It's going to be awesome, and I can't wait.
There was something I wanted to write about, but i've completely forgotten about it now. I must be tired, so I think i'll go to bed now.
I have a favour to ask soon, which I'll also be putting on facebook (almost 500 supporters now). It involve an A4 piece of paper, and your willingness to stick it in your window/photograph it etc, and there will be prizes galore, so stay tuned.
