My Waterstones Summer

A brilliant day in Poole
There's a formula emerging for these summer Sauturdays under the sign of the big W.
Take a comfortable book shop with enthusiastic and attentive staff; insert A Habit Of Dying plus display and author; add a steady flow of readers; regularly stir in excellent conversation (vary the topics to add flavour - yesterday included education systems, trials of publishing, eReaders pros and cons, eye surgery, Tuscanny and Cockermouth). The result is a tiring but hugely enjoyable and never dull day signing books.
And so it was in Poole, just as it has been in High Wycombe, Hereford, Cirencester, Witney, Banbury and Oxford during this, my 'Waterstones Summer'.
Added pleasure this morning has been receiving an invitation to another branch that has already heard about the 'fantastic signing event yesterday'.
Nothing succeeds like success, eh?
