A Petersfield Bookshop that tweeted it hadn't sold anything on Tuesday,
is inundated with orders!

Having been there, I can confirm it is an excellent 2nd hand and antiquarian bookshop :-D :-D

You can even look for books - and order - online:

I heard that yesterday on Radio 4 Maggie.
Neil Gaiman was the author who re tweeted the original message and the orders came pouring in
.A real good feel story. :-D

Shame it is in Petersfield but you can't have everything.

Whenever I'm in Petersfield, (not very often, I'm afraid) I go there.

Didn't Erica Rowe work there?

You remember. Got them out at Twickenham.

Ooh - just Googled!
Yes, she did, with the present owner's dad!
You can get a poster (not topless) with her in the shop
