Bought 11 June 2011 – Cumbria Bookshop, Bowness

Bought on our Lake District holiday in a lovely independent bookshop in the local town. A lovely compendium to dip into over Christmas time. Quotations, paragraphs and excerpts from fiction, non-fiction and letters from the 14th century to contemporary writers, grouped into themes that show that there's nothing new about most shopping experiences. Like those books of diary entries for each day, the juxtaposition of voices from different eras really threw up the similarities in the pieces. Excellent.
