What do you say when there isn't much to blog about?

Much nicer day today, especially around lunchtime
 looking over my shoulder I meandered off to The Belgian fof a cuppa and a sarni
a restorative and money well spent
the inevitable sketch and the hour past fast
Pleasurama cliff wall has just sprouted the first shoots of greenery after being painted with the wrong paint, or whatever happened
quite a lot more sand has gone from Ramsgate main sands
The Pav is still looking very sad
the old slipways winch house or whatever it is, much more visible
Back in the bookshop, a quiet day, usually is just after the schools go back, no blog post for the bookshop today however I learnt a lot about Ebay.

Having a bookshop I don’t sell many books on the internet, in most cases the rule is something like this:- buy it, try it on the shelves in the bookshop for about a year, if it hasn’t sold then review it. Then the rule is something like this:- reduce the price, stick it on Amazon. One way or another try to get back at least what I paid for it and buy a different book.

Every so often though it’s my job to check out the options and today it’s been working out the logistics and economics of putting books I no longer want for stock in the bookshop on Ebay.

Post a Comment

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.
