Summer in Baden-Baden

It's not book of the month any more so I can now reveal that Summer in Baden-Baden was our world cup super special prize trigger - and none of you literary folk noticed!

Had anyone e-mailed or phoned or spoken to us in the shop about the reasons for our May book of the month being Summer in Baden-Baden and whether this had anything to do with where England would be based in the build up to the World Cup they would have won a SPECTACULAR prize...(just imagine whatever you most desire - that was the prize you could have had! Don't you feel gutted?)

You have to be sharp in the indy bookselling came. I know I keep banging on about it but it's not just us - you can all be involved too...

So keep your wits about you and watch out for more "hidden" and "secret" prize-winning opportunities.


  1. "You have to be sharp in the indy bookselling came."

    Indeed. Sometimes you even need to spell properly too!

    Sorry. Couldn't resist. Don't mind little old spelling Nazi me... I'm just cross I didn't win the prize.

  2. I thought that was why you'd chosen it! and I don't even like football. That probably means I'm barred, now, doesn't it?

  3. Spilling? Wot I need is a gud editer!

  4. I don`t know about games and prizes, obviously I missed something, but I bought Summer in B-B for other reasons - the title, the blurb - I love Dostoievsky and Baden-Baden and on CP`s enthusiasm. Delighted I did. It`s a terrific novel. Sorry I didn1t pick up on the prize - whatever it was.
