Today is National Bookshop day. Get into your nearest bookshop and buy a book – any book. Most publishers have a classics range that start at about $8. Support them, or we will lose them. I’ll be at Dymocks Carousel from 10.30, helping to spread the word not only that books are the single most important record of culture in our society, and bookshops are one of their most important repositories, but that books can be fun, thrilling, and even life changing.
