I love to read but since I bought a Kindle about 4 years ago I haven't bought a book. I just find the Kindle brilliant, bring it anywhere and fits in the pocket.

Alternatively, if you're ever in Skibbereen, there is a place there called, The Time Traveller's Bookshop, they do some top jigsaws in there.

...the mention of 'Reference' made me smirk recalling that old yarn about a man who came highly reminded to work on a sheep farm, it was so grand he was hired on the spot....sometime later after discovering his new start was a useless rogue he met the farmer at Lairg Sheep sale no less who gave him such a fine 'reference' and challenged him for that dishonesty ...'I know' say's yer man sheepishly (pardon the pun)...'but you will have to give him an even better reference to get rid of him !...

There's something calming about being in a room full of books.

Funny you mentioned that, I was driving through Skibbereen (don't think I've ever actually set foot in the town), and that bookshop caught my eye. Do I recall them having a shop in town? West Cork enterprises are great for expanding into the city - I noticed a sign for the Funky Skunk last time I was in Bantry.

Good to know that there are indie book shops like Time Travellers anyway, just in case all this talk about Waterstones is true.

..what the fuck is knobbish about my comment?I have an occasionally used Kindle..was marvelling at the size of your pockets...and now your marvelling of Kindle over Paperbacks....to some of us paperbacks are a fine substitute to expensive hardbacks, grand as they might look it's what written that matters.
