The ‘I’ readers page

This was in response to an article about the rise in independent bookshops. I have included my original letter below – the sections in bold were cut. I expected the last paragraph would be cut … but my observation regarding wealthier areas was the point I wanted to make!

I have to say that Backstory sounds – idyllic, music wine, books and chat – most of my favourite pastimes. The problem though is exactly the same as with food shopping – local food shops are thriving in the wealthier areas where you will also find the independent bookshops. I dropped in to a local bookshop the other day – and spotted an interesting book. Seeing as I had £90 of vouchers for a chain bookstore, I arranged to collect it to from them to discover that it was half the cover price. Independent bookshops like independent food shops require disposal income.
Best of luck, Tom – it sounds great and if you require music and I’m in the vicinity I’d be more than happy to do a session.

Help required!

Three are using this image to illustrate the concept of keeping in touch during your commute. To me, it looks like a woman sticking her hand into a toilet bowl! What am I missing!?

Quote of the day

After he’d signed up to join the tank regiment, Peter Ustinov was asked why he chosen that one. He replied ‘well, if I must go to war, I’d rather do it sitting down…..’ Wonderful!

Hinterland – the budget cut

Visited Aberystwyth for the first time in 44 years! Found my Auntie Kitty’s B&B and my Auntie Gwen’s farm where I met the wife of my Grandmother’s sisters grandson!!! Also got very wet and blown around in 70 mph winds! Met lots of friendly people – Great weekend!

Also visited Devil’s Bridge for the sake of authenticity …….

Could do better . . .

I loved this story. This guy is getting 2.6 million pounds, whilst being actually sacked. His logic is extraordinary.

“There are 100 things commentators say I got wrong  but hopefully I got 101 things right ” does this mean a man who does this job only has to be slightly better than pure chance to be considered  successful?  welldone
