No. 11? Wow

On a flying visit back to my old haunt – The Best Bookshop in Sussex – I found out (belatedly, I admit) that The Independent newspaper (U.K.) had recently run an article rating Methvens Booksellers in Worthing as No.11 in the country.  To put that into perspective, the much-vaunted Daunts in London, is two places behind and Foyles is at no.24!

I would just like to say to all those fools at Ottakars who thought they could march into Worthing and make it ‘theirs’: how’s it like to work for Waterstones?

That. Felt. So. Good.
