Working together we other people is one thing, getting to know them quite another. I was surprised to discover that one of my friends here – a friend of my Dad going back many years – has more to do with books than I had suspected, and this experience, this knowledge has pushed me on a step further. Now, I knew that he is a reader of books – there isn’t really anyone who is a friend of my Dad’s who isn’t a reader of books! – but I hadn’t realized that he was deeply involved with them in his younger years. By deeply involved I mean he worked as a bookseller for several years in the London store Harrods – before the book store became a franchise there – and was also responsible for their accounts. Now if that isn’t an added bonus!

But what does it mean? It means that my plans have taken another step in the right direction as I now have an experienced partner who is capable of working together with publishers and putting together the planned bookstore. Not just that, but it has bolstered my confidence enough that we have now placed an order for the bookstore software and domain names and will begin working on the configuration over the coming weeks.
He has also taken over the task of contacting publishers to offer future services as a book supplier for the store, which takes a great deal off my hands and really made my weekend into an almost perfect one!
Love & Kisses, Viki.
