Hi folks, it's me again.
Just wanted to update you on the Ayoade situation:
A few days later I returned to Waterstones during my lunch hour.
The book had been removed from the window. Perhaps my recent inquiries had alerted them to the sad lack of Ayoade, despite what the system had said.
You will be pleased to hear that I have not only ordered Ayoade from Amazon, but also The Bruce Campbell Autobiography. Both books were second hand, but apparently in good condition, and less than half the price!
The online method wins again. I don't want high street shops to die out, but they let themselves down with these sort of shenanigans.
I'll let you know how I get on with actually reading the books.
I can't wait to see what I write about the Archers!
