How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you all managed to get lots of reading in.
Some of you might have noticed an added page on my blog called Waterstones Challenge, this page has every place that a Waterstones store is located. I got the list off their website and I plan on trying to visit and buy a book from every one of them. I will check their website once a month to make sure the list of stores is up to date and adapt my list accordingly.
I got the idea off my sister and her partner, they have been doing the same kind of thing for the past few years with JD Weatherspoon pubs. I love visiting book shops of any kind especially independent ones. However, the ones I really love are Waterstones, they are always so well organised and welcoming and I do love their loyalty card, plus you can find one in most places and I believe a holiday is not a holiday without a good book buying binge. Whilst on holiday in Bath I had a silly thought about trying to visit every Waterstones on the planet and that silly thought has stayed with me and developed and so I have decided to try to accomplish it.
The rules are:-
No Waterstones can be ticked off the list without:-
- A photo of the store
- A book bought from the store
I had to make sure I actually got some books as well, I am after all a book hoarding dragon.
Two have been ticked off the list already, Bath and Shrewsbury and I hope to get visiting as many as I can as soon as I can.
Wish me luck!
