Anniversary Message

From Mary Bartholomew...
Before the site was even launched, I was roped in to do independent reviews of those books I had read in my capacity as a bookshop manager.

Being a compulsive reader, these were many, and kept me happily occupied in the early days of retirement. I always say I became editor 'by default' when Dora Smith was unable to continue and here I am, ten years later, still reading as much as ever, and still enjoying dealing with as many books as I ever did back in my bookselling days. Would that there were more reading hours in a day!
