Thank you very much to my website’s first customers. I want to reassure them and future buyers that I will not be using my slim profit margins to fund ego-massaging trips into space. This is yet another example of the difference between me and Jeff Bezos.

I loathe Am***n. Andy Jassy’s appointment as CEO earlier this month hasn’t made a difference to me. I don’t buy or sell on the site. End of story.

I am an independent consumer and bookseller. I am also #indieindiebookseller ‘cos I play guitar-driven choons when I’m cataloguing books and processing orders.

Contact me if you have any book queries or music recommendations. It would be nice to play your suggestions while I work.
