books are my bag

Today is national Books Are My Bag Day! Independent bookshops all around Britain are having parties to celebrate and you can do your bit for the indies by popping down to one of them, buying a book, and tweeting a photo of it with yourself and the bookshop under the hashtag #BooksAreMyBag! Here's my choice of book:

Actually, I will try to buy one today; I got the jump on the festivities by getting this yesterday, and then lovely Frances and Peter Hopkins at Urmston Bookshop wouldn't let me pay for it. (We almost had a row about it.) So today I really must fork out a few pounds for something nice. But check out THIS one! I hadn't heard about it and Laika the Astronaut by Owen Davey stopped me in my tracks when I passed it on display in Urmston.
