The Book Barge
A nice reaction to the ‘one-click’ approach to book buying, with the emergence of the book barge, a floating bookshop that’s moored in Staffordshire, but for the next few days will be on the Regent’s Canal, just behind the Guardian HQ.
According to the Guardian article, the owner Sarah Henshaw says that “by setting up on a canal boat we hope to promote a less hurried and harried lifestyle of idle pleasures, cups of tea, conversation, culture and, of course, curling up with an incomparably good Book Barge purchase.” Of course it’s supporting independent bookshops as well, which can only be a good thing.
The barge is now on a six-month tour of the UK’s canals and doing all kinds of onboard author events. Check out the website for more details.
