Ramsgate Watercolour painting started and a bit of a ramble

This is from Ship Shape Cafe over breakfast, coffee with toast and marmalade
start painting a yellow door and it opens
I have been very busy in my bookshop during the last couple of days.

Here is the link to the fiction books that went away today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/fiction-in-bookshop.html

And the books that went out on the shelves yesterday http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/paperback-potters-in-bookshop.html

I’m not quite sure if this sort of thing falls in to bracket of advertising or arts, always a bit of a grey area bookshops, a library or art gallery would probably attract public funding, while bookshops tend to get taxed in the same way as betting shops and takeaways. 

Does, for instance saying you have just put out a lot of Thomas Hardy locally fall into the same bracket as a local art gallery saying they have just put a constable on display?

Having written a leaflet about when the Thanet bookshops are open with a bit of Margate history for the tourist information office there, I am now doing one for Canterbury. to be honest I was surprised how popular the Margate one has been.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
