Shameless bit of inappropriate pluggery ahoy -or- call to arms for all that is decent...
My local(ish) bookshop has been trying to keep afloat and is organising clever new strategies for indie book shops such as trying to get people to buy a book from them. Harringay is often seen as a bit of a cultural wasteland and the Big Green Bookshop is an oasis in a desert of McDonalds, kebab houses, stock clearance shops, more kebab houses and so many fried chicken outlets that we now have 34 US states covered with the names of them all (South Dakota fried Chicken being a favourite).
So, yeah, if you live in Nth London go visit and buy stuff or take them some cake and kind words.
