Post Fair...

Another late post I'm afraid (must do better) however here's a bit of a catch up of the last week...

This week in Bo'ness things have been a little quieter than we're used to - school holidays, post Fair Day blues, typical Scottish summer weather (note to self, must remember to get an umbrella stand) and of course a bit of a marathon sporting weekend to attend / watch on the TV to round it all off. But that's not to say we've been twiddling our thumbs, drinking coffee and reading our way through the stock (chance would be a fine thing!) No, this last week we managed to get our regular monthly enewsletter sent out, updated the featured books on the website, had an advert in the local paper and taken part in Independent Booksellers Week 2008... (for that is indeed what we are!) ...OK so we haven't had the Strictly Come Bookselling events, girls nights in, and quiz nights (I've no extra chairs yet!) as other bookshops have been doing but perhaps next year! Even so though, we've had competitions and prize draws and special offers too, and as the 'week' doesn't finish till tomorrow (Tuesday 8th) you still have time to pop down and pick up a national competition form or bring your coupon from the paper to enter the prize draw.

Also this week we've managed to get in another copy of Bo'ness: A Glimpse of the Past - a book that always goes flying off the shelf as soon as it comes in. So if you're looking to find out what Bo'ness used to look like I'd make your way down here tout de suite as I'm sure it won't be here for much longer and I'm not sure when I'll get the next copies!
