April & a gentle blossoming
April, as someone once said, is the cruellest month. By someone I of course mean T.S. Eliot, and while I've never agreed with said statement, I'm giving in to the random quoting of Margate's favourite poet. April and May have traditionally been my "best" months, and this year is looking to exceed my usual expectations of them. Very soon The Margate Bookshop should be settling into a shop space all of its own in the heart of the town!
All going to plan, the next few weeks will be busy with research, planning, buying and infinite diy work. While I can't formally announce an opening yet, being somewhat superstitious in the way that many people are, I can say that once I have news, you (beloved subscribers!) will be amongst the first to hear. For now, here are a handful of book recommendations. I've added many more fiction titles to the online shop so be sure to have a browse and support The Margate Bookshop as I take the steps towards making this a reality.
