Since I’ve been typically slack in shouting about it, I’m sure you’ve all been to The Book Depository by now. All I can say is that it seems a very good thing: like walking into a bookshop where it’s easy and pleasant to browse and there’s lots of interesting stuff on the shelves and in the air. Amazon and ABE are just functional places to me now; this is a cheering alternative.
And we’re of course pleased to see it in good hands (though I want to start referring to him as the Sinister Overlord of the British Litblogging Scene. I think it’s a catchy title, and could stick.)
