The Magic of Trent’s Book Corner

1) This amuses me.

2) It’s also posted because my parents read my blog and sometime in the next month they’re going to start the yearly dance of “what do you want for Christmas
and I’m forced to give them a list of books and DVDs that are not easily available in their hometown of the Gold Coast with nothing but mall-spawn bookshops catering to tourist’s looking for a beach read. Now apparently I’m being unfair with that accusation, for they have a Border’s now, but after fifteen years as a reader in one of the least reader-friendly cities I’ve ever been in, I remain unaccountably bitter.

In any case, when they ask this year, I’m going to tell them “All I want for Christmas is a copy of Managing Death,” for it should be widely available on release and Trent is an awesome dude. And ’cause the first book, Death Most Definite, was a cracking read. And ’cause the video corner amuses me.

    Does this mean you're already hooked up with Dreadnought love?

    An actual Borders on the Gold Coast? When they're getting scarce in London?

    @Kevin: Yeah, pretty much. I'm waiting for the pre-ordered shiny to arrive.

    @Sean: I don't think local borders is actually owned by Borders anymore – they were bought out by Angus and Robertson or something. It still translates as "big bookshop full of books you wouldn't otherwise find on the Coast" though.

    Apparently, Borders as a chain are in significant financial trouble. Links and additional info at:
