... and then there were none


The Bay used to have two bookshops: the Bay Bookshop, which closed its doors in late 2014, and Hooked on Books, which has done so just now. I guess running a bookshop has always been a labour of love but there's still the rent to pay.

Although patronising at the best of times, I hadn't patronised Hooked on Books for a while, which I hope didn't contribute to their demise.

It's a sad day for the Bay's book-lovers, now that the last bookshop has closed its doors, but it's been nice knowing you, Fliss, Mark and the Girls.
