I also have another appointment to go and view the premises I am hoping to rent, this time with a property adviser. It will be good to see it again, and continue to think about how to use the space. If this does not happen, I will definitely set up temporary, part-time trading in a space that is available cheaply, so that I can start to get things off the ground and publicise the venture in Kenilworth, until different premises can be found. But I am hoping this one will work out, as both the space itself and the location seem right for what I want.
I am more excited than I sound! Trying to be sensible and a bit cautious, so that I am not too disappointed if things don’t go to plan…
Once I have published the website I will also be able to start looking into selling books online, which is something I hope to do alongside the physical shop.
Meanwhile, and to make this blog post vaguely more interesting, I am reading The Moviegoer by Walker Percy, American novel published in 1961, I think, and it’s very good. I have been meaning to read Walker Percy for years, though didn’t really know what to expect – glad finally to be reading him now. Hope you are all reading something groovy!
