Happy Day One of London Book Fair! This year marks the last time it will take place at Earl’s Court (2015 it will move to Olympia). I have much to say about yesterday at the Publishing for Digital Minds Conference, but that will have to wait until I have a moment to collect my thoughts.

Hiya from Holborn. Thought I’d take a moment to share some pictures from today’s walk (from left to right): Holborn Library, a reproduction of an old photograph taken at Foyles bookshop on Charing Cross, and the entrance of Foyles on Charing Cross, which used to explode with bookshops. We came away with Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends. Classic!

Toronto: 1; London: 0

After a three-hour delay caused by our being re-routed to New Foundland to get a sick passenger emergency care, I finally got to my ‘hood away from my ‘hood, Clerkenwell, in northern London. Walking through the hip hustle bustle lite on Exmouth Market, I felt something was off and looked up: my favorite bookshop in the area, Clerkenwell Tales, had been shuttered.

*heart shatter*

A tweet got me an answer. Best wishes to your second go in Toronto, a fine book city. Now I need a new bookshop.
