'One of the perks I value most about having a bookshop is that our talks series, such as it is (roughly a speaker a month between September – June) enables me to meet professionals in every field (the arts, sciences, even sports) who I would otherwise never have had the opportunity to meet. Some few are well-known to the public - hey! It’s a long way up here, the fee is risible, and the Old Waiting Room wherein the talks take place only holds 50 people tops (60 if they’re skinny). Still, some serious names (serious names with big hearts) have been willing to make the perilous journey above Watford. Anyway, all the talks begin at 7.30 and cost £3 (and that includes a glass of plonk no less.)'

Author Signings 'take two forms: either a signing on a Saturday morning in the shop or an evening event. The evening events are usually at 6.30 pm with doors opening at 6 pm when canapes and wine are served. The author speaks about his or her work and takes questions for about an hour, then there is an opportunity for customers to have their books signed'.

Alert 'The Torbay Bookshop in Paignton is to close its doors for the last time in August after 23 years of trade. Owners Sarah and Matthew Clarke put the shop up for sale in September after two decades, but have decided to close the shop after failing to find a buyer. Matthew Clarke said he was unsure as to why there were no takers for the profitable business. "There’s probably a list of 30 reasons people won’t buy, but that’s not helpful", he said. "We’ve been profitable so that’s not the reason... It’s got to do with the state of the country, bookselling, retailing, parking charges in town. There isn’t [just] one reason."

Organizes regular book events, including the Edinburgh Independent Radical Book Fair and the Edinburgh Book Fringe. Alert 'For many years Word Power has worked hard to maintain an online bookstore that would provide an alternative to Amazon for readers who wanted to shop ethically but were not able to visit the bookshop in Edinburgh. Though it might not have seemed it, this was a huge and costly undertaking for a small independent. Reluctantly we have had to accept that we simply don’t have the capacity to carry this on at the moment.' See now the Entry Lighthouse.
