When I was a young, impressionable teenager and had dozily watched ‘Summer Holiday’ on a lazy Saturday afternoon, I was seized by the idea of how cool it would be to convert a bus and live in it. The open road, the panoramic views, Cliff Richard… ahem. Somehow this idea seemed exotically cool while the delights of camping à la Girl Guides with chemical loos, had never really appealed.
Which is why, while stumbling around online I was slightly giddy to discover The Book Barge, which may be coming to a town near you soon. Check out the gallery of pictures (and coo like me if you wish), the colourful blog and their ‘@ large’ page for their current location. I look forward to reading about their future adventures in nomadic bookselling…
