The Isle of Thanet Visitor’s Guide 1901, how to behave in the bookshop and out and about with me.
After a rather bizarre conversation today I should make if clear that I don’t mind if people spend a long time looking at the books and whether or not they actually buy one. I am also happy to find them something to sit on while the browse.
It’s been a long day with a very busy bookshop at times today, as you see if you click on the link to the photos quite a lot of books went on the shelves too http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/psychic-world-in-bookshop.html sorry if some of the photos are a bit blurry, I think they are all legible.
I think I’ve got that of me chest, complicated thing researching local history it attracts people to the bookshop who are just not used to using bookshops and frankly if you aren’t in a relaxed state of mind when faced with a multitude of local directories you are likely to make mistakes.
Come to think of it I don’t mind what you do on my various websites either, I decided that once something is shared online, it, to all intents and purposes, has become public property. So feel free to copy the pictures I put on the internet, use them for Christmas cards, put them on Facebook, pretend you took the photo painted the picture if you like.
So here is today’s featured book, here is the link should you wish to buy it online http://michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/id166.htm there are some more sample pages from a link on that page too.
And here are the pages from it
