Absolute Beginners in the Bookshop

Open again on Tuesday. Have a great Bank Holiday Weekend!

The Secret Life of Birds Who they are and what they do by Colin Tudge

"he made me kinky about books: he managed to teach me – to this day, I don’t know how – that books were not just a thing like that – I mean, just books – but somebody else’s mind opened up for me to look into, and he taught me the habit, later on, of actually buying then! Yes – I mean real books, like the serious paperbacks, which must have been unknown among the kids up in the Harrow Road those days, who thought a book’s an SF or a Western, if they thought it’s anything." - Colin MacInnes, Absolute Beginners
