The booksellers of Bristol overcome with shyness – the carefully laid bait has not worked. No sightings to report.
Stuck in heavy traffic all the way to Weston-super-Mare, but there found David Nesbit barricaded in behind walls of books at Sterling Books. A real servant of the community – books for all at reasonable prices. Taking in repairs, not just of books as we might expect, but clocks, model ships and anything else his customers care to bring in. Forty-seven years a bookseller and still going strong. Every town should have a shop like this.
The town council should be begging, praying and paying him to be here – not fleecing him for business rates.
Staying here the night. Sea-views from our sunny room on the front. Retsina already on ice at the local Greek restaurant. Over and out for the week.
