Whereof one does not know...

...thereof one should not blog. Yesterday I posted about the difficulty of getting hold of the book Not Buying It by Judith Levine. I very much appreciated her posting to this blog (and also for the very nice email she sent me), but several other bookshops have been in touch to say that there is a UK wholesaler - Bertrams - who do in fact have stock (24 at the time of writing this email). So my post was factually inaccurate (as kindly pointed out by Clive Keeble). Apologies for that. It just so happens that we don't have an account with Bertrams (more fool us it looks like). We chose to have accounts with two other wholesalers when we set up and I'm sure sometimes it works to our advantage, sometimes against. I just assumed that if two of the UK's leading wholesalers were showing February for delivery, that was indicative of the market as a whole. BTW, and coincidentally, EUK (which owns THE) today announced that they will be attempting to acquire Bertrams. More on Charkblog, but the competition commission will no doubt be asked to adjudicate...

  1. Didn't I just read somewhere today that Bertrams have just been taken over by someone else? Chances are they would have been in too much of a "takeover" frenzy to know what stock they had where.

  2. But seeing as a blind eye was effectively turned on the Wottakers situation, what's the betting they do it again here...

    Best of luck with the shop, hope it's going well.
