Just to remind you that the first week in October is officially a Buy A Friend A Book Week. For no better reason than that Debra Hamel says so. And she says so because she thinks it's a good idea to buy books for your friends. And so do I. Go take a look.
And while you're thinking about what to buy for your friends, may I remind you that one eminently suitable present -- indeed the most suitable present -- is the print version of the Grumpy Old Bookman. This is available from either Amazon.co.uk or from the other lot, Amazon.com, in both cases at a substantial discount. No wonder I never make any money.
