CONGRATULATIONS to Richard Greatrex as the next step forward for his recently announced bespoke bookstall service to churches begins to take shape in Bath in partnership with agreatread.co.uk, bringing the two worlds of online bookselling and local shopping together.
From a report issued earlier today in the Bath Chronicle:
The first of a new series of Christian microbookshops is to be set up in Bath.
The sales at a city centre church will fill a gap left by the sudden closure of the Wesley Owen store in St James’s Parade.
It is being launched by the Rev Richard Greatrex – who managed the store – and online bookseller David Wavre.
The microshop will carry Mr Wavre’s A Great Read brand and will be followed by more in churches in Bristol, Radstock and Frome.
The pair are in the final stages of negotiations over the location of the mini-bookshop.
Mr Wavre said: “Each shop or stall will have a range of top titles, perennial favourites and newly-published books available as well as the monthly comprehensive A Great Read magazines, detailing hand-picked newly-published and established titles.”
