A shout out goes to the folks behind the very interesting CoverSpy

People (well New Yorkers anyway) can send in the names of the books they see fellow commuters reading on trains or whatever and they are collated into an interesting page of insight on what New York is reading on any given day …

Chapter’s book store December 12, 2007

Just a quickie to tell people about the new Chapter’s book store.  For a long time it was the refuge of many’s the bargain book hunter and book worm (myself included) at it’s rickety old store on Middle Abbey Street, Dublin.

Glad to report that the store in its entirety and then some, has moved to a spanking new premises on Parnell Street West, just opposite the entrance to the Ilac shopping centre.  Go and check it out – its so big , you could fish in it !  And now the books are new (as well as a large second hand floor) and a reasonable amount cheaper than its main O’Connell Street rival.
