Lots going on with events and visitors to the bookshop. Not to mention plans for next year, markets and fairs, author events, live music and much more. Keep looking in to find out about everything that is happening in the bookshop in the middle of nowhere.

Maps, books, random thoughts24th April 2016

Map exhibition is now on countdown to next Saturday's opening and as usual there is a massive amount to do. I have been buying items right up until the last minute and keeping my trusty helpers busy.

Map exhibition opens at  11.00 on Saturday and if previous years are anything to go by it will be worth turning up early.

Busy week, peculiar nature of media, Lots going on in April2nd April 2016

Vast amount of cakes have been consumed and so it was that Dawn arrived this morning with 7 new cakes for the weekend. Please do come in and help us eat them, unless you wish the Aardvark staff to be as big as a house.
