Just got an upsetting little email from the deputy manager of Borders Preston: “I just wanted to say good luck with the books. This is our last day in the building before we are kicked out and sent to the job centre! A very sad end to a great bookshop.”
I’ve done four signings for Borders Preston over the last 18 months, and sold a good number of books there. They always looked after me very well. End of an era.
