Christmas in the Bookshop

So Black Friday 2014 has been and gone. Fights in stores made headline news. An American retail con has been imported as a way to part punters from their cash. Buy stuff you don’t want or need just because it seems to be a bargain. Retailers pass off old stock, offer discounts on inflated prices and generally pull every shady trick in the book to sell stuff.

This is the best time of year to visit a bookshop. The range of books will tempt you into buying without any hard sell nonsense. The atmosphere is bubbling. The warm drinks sure to drive away any winter chill.

On Saturday the Christmas lights were switched on in Malvern. Christmas is officially underway!
