SAVE OUR SCOTTISH PAPERBACKS

April 1 2014

STOP PRESS

SCOTLAND TO BAN PAPERBACK BOOKS

Do you live in Scotland? Do you, like me, have  a huge collection of paperback books?  Then buy while you can because from September 2014 Scottish  residents will only be able to download new e-books : the printed versions will banned.

In the capital  today crowds gathered in front of Edinburgh Castle where the Minister for Reading, Mr Carnt Wright gave a long, drawn out speech.

'The only way to make Scottish Independence work,' he declared, 'is to limit our spending.   
 I therefore have no choice but to ban the printed word..'

Thousands have already signed a petition calling for the ban to be reversed.  Please download your copy and vote NOW (before lunchtime if possible.)

I, as a resident of Scotland, but formerly of Lancashire, Leicestershire and North Yorkshire, believe this to be an April Fool..... And a fair attempt at one!

Good Grief ! who ever woulda thought. I fear for all books anyway, sigh.
So happy to see you, we have been up to our ears in "stuff" and I've neglected visiting. Hope to catch up soon. (())

Glad to have got you - Scotland seems to have been very popular on April Fools' Day this year...:)
