Popped into the new flagship Foyles* store on Charing Cross Road today. It’s very impressive, weighing in at a mighty eight floors (although only six are full of books; there’s also the now inevitable cafe, plus a “gallery” which I didn’t get chance to visit). Diamond Geezer has a much better post than I could write about the place, so suffice to say that I came away with a  couple of books that I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into. Could have spent much longer there, but that would probably also mean spending much more money!

I also enjoyed the many neatly arranged drawers of sheet music, and especially the blank manuscript paper section:

* Interestingly they don’t have an apostrophe, yet seem to have avoided all the fuss Waterstones had to put up with when they dropped theirs.

  1. Loads of drawers of sheet music? I absolutely have to go there! It looks cool!

    A smaller voice of protest inside says, “But you don’t have a piano. It is unlikely that you will acquire a piano for many, many years. What would you DO with sheet music?”


    1. I don’t have a piano either, just wandered into that section and appreciated the neatness of it all!
