Bed-In at Scottish Book Store

What could be better than spending the day in bed surrounded by good books? Throw in "cups of tea, biscuits [I think this means cookies], a cat at the end of the bed, a telephone off the hook, lots of fluffy pillows and a warm duvet," and you're approaching the sublime. That's exactly what Scottish bookseller Jayne Ramage did last week when she climbed into bed in the middle of her Watermill book shop. As reported by Deadline Scotland, Ramage "is urging customers to beat the biting recession and escape the worries of the economy by spending the day in bed with a good book." Customers expressed some surprise ("It's very unusual to see someone in bed when you pop into a book shop.") but were charmed by the idea.

What a grand idea! The treat of the day for me is the couple of hours reading at the end of the day. Love your blog!
