You won’t find those cheap glossy little “How to serve ground beef in 250 interesting ways”-type books here – leave those to the chain stores.
You won’t find shop assistants who ask “Just what sort of books does Hemingway write then?”. (Although – to be fair – that was in a Waldenbooks in the States)
What you will find are 2 really nice people (Nida and Cliff Kilian) who love books and can talk about them, customers who enjoy discovering something new, chairs to sit in and browse.
Lots of kids.
I counted 3 (plus Mums and Dads) in about 5 minutes last Saturday.
And they all left proudly carrying a bag with a book in it.
So there’s hope yet.
