A new release
We must all diversify our retail offerings, but who is the bookseller in country Victoria selling geriatric scooters? The ABA’s newest life member, on his rounds, tells me he spotted a scooter, complete with red warning flag, parked in front of the new release section of a certain Portland bookseller. Apparently, the proprietor of the store is local agent for the machine. I wonder what the margin is, and whether he can arrange a spin on a demonstration model for this ageing correspondent.
