What are books to you?
To me, they go into the category of “wish never to have to do without”, along with cheese, blackcurrant juice cordial and vegetable soaps.
Yesterday I needed to go into Perth to get a book for my daughter (for school- she is a literature student) and I found myself in Boffins Bookshop. The smell, the courteous staff, the colours… ah heaven.
Times are a bit tight atm, but who can resist the magnetism of a good book or two? I had to choose, Claire Schaeffer or Johnny Rotten? Both classics in their chosen fields, it was almost overwhelming… I bought them both (and put them on the plastic).
