Browsing in bookshops

is apparently being destroyed by the internet per this article in the Times.

I now have 3 haunts around Greenwich and Blackheath –
* upstairs in Oxfam in Tranquil Vale (B’heath)
* the antiquarian bookshop next door in B’heath
* the bookshop in the market in Greenwich.

Waterstones is OK, but far too chainy. All the books smell of plastic. Not nice.
