It's hard to believe when you see the accompanying photos, Cockermouth's The New Bookshop is back open for business following the devastating floods that raged through the town on 19th and 20th November last year. In each of these pics you can see the shop and the aftermath. Seeing that skip full of books wasn't the saddest thing that happened - not by a long shot - but to an author, it is still very poignant.
Any way, to celebrate the reopening Catherine Hetherington, the owner of the shop, is holding an open day on Sunday 4th July 2010 and invites everyone along to joi in the celebrations. I'll be there.
