Photos, old Thanet ones, Canterbury today, Happy Fathers Day

 As a shop assistant in Michael’s Bookshop here in Ramsgate, my working life is very much focused on customers. Bookshop customers are mostly either people who have an interest in some subject or another to the degree that they have a collection of books about the subject, people who read fiction by genre of the whole work of particular authors or people who are trying to sell books they own for one reason or another.

Occasionally we get people in the shop who fall into the none of the above category and in the past I have to admit to getting rid of them as best I can. On Friday after doing my best on that front it occurred to me that this could be some sort of cry for help from people who have difficulty reading, so I am changing my approach, or at least going to try.  

Canterbury today, buying books - mostly the charity bookshops there - I took my camera

I was pleased to buy a first edition of Travels With My Aunt, humorous novels by major English literary figures are not common and this is one of my favourites. Not particularly valuable in monetary terms but nice to have.

Bookshop, workwise

Are yes here we are, I think the photos I didn't caption are fairly obvious or already captioned

I was rather taken with this shop window display in Canterbury, hence the animation

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
