Q11 where in Thanet

I am doing my best to respond to all the answers on Facebook and to keep the quizes going, mainly because I think it takes people's minds of the current situation. Across the various Facebook groups there can be a lot of comments and I do have quite a lot of other stuff to do.

We are still trading where I work a Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate, the shop is a bit quieter than usual, but lacking clear guidance and keeping a eye on what other shops are doing seems to be anb approach.

We are closed tomorrow because it's Thursday and I guess we will wait and see what Friday morning brings in terms of government announcements.

I think today's announcement that the schools are to close will impact on our decision as to whether or not we open the bookshop on Friday, difficult times all round.

By building various bookcases I have managed to achieve an extra bookcase for general paperback fiction, we already had 15 so this extra 8 shelves only expands the space by about 5%, come the spring I hope to expand the fiction sections a lot more.

The issue here is that there isn't much in southeast england that has a reasonable range of quality fiction priced to compete with the internet.

With the average paperback selling for around £2 including postage, it's a bit of a minefield for ordinary people both buying and selling. Buying secondhand online is at best unpredictable and selling produces very little fo a fair amount of hard work.

Interesting info from another local business "Latest:  The Ambrette has pandemic cover on its insurance - but the insurance company is refusing to pay out because the "Corona Virus is not contagious."  Details to follow." It sort of sums up the dilemma faced by the small business.

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.
