Happy Anniversary, Goldsboro Books

David and Daniel, directors of Goldsboro Books, are celebrating the shop's 10th anniversary on Wednesday, and that's a remarkable accomplishment in today's tight economy.

I can't help but think about all the wine poured at Goldsboro Books and about all the toasts made in honor of MNW novels . I'm also thinking about Rachel DuPree's launch in 2008. There were seven of us there, and if that disappointed David and Daniel, they didn't let on. We drank, and I signed copies of the book. We drank, and Len Tyler showed up and bought the first copy. We drank, and then got out our umbrellas and went off to dinner. It was the perfect launch.

Here's to Goldsboro Books. Here's to David and Daniel. Congratulations. Job well done.

Happy birthday, Goldsboro, and congratulations, David and Daniel! Here's to the next ten years!

Congrats David and Daniel!

Len Tyler said...

Ann - you beat me to it! So I'll just have to echo what you and others have already said so well. Goldsboro have given great support to MNW (and to crime writing). Many thanks and congratulations to them. I'm delighted that it's official that I bought the first copy of Rachel DuPree. Definitely one of the best books of the year (as the Orange Prize judges later discovered).

Ditto from me too. Goldsboro have been massive in respect to the MNW titles and the MNW book launches have been legendry. From the moment you set foot inside the shop, the welcome is nothing but warm and appreciative. The only negative thing I can say about Goldsboro books is the effect the shop has on the old bank balance. I've had to drag myself kicking and screaming from shelling out a £100 or so on a first edition on more than one occasion (and succumbed on others!).
Here's to David and co. and another 10 years of Goldsboro books!!

Ann Weisgarber said...

Len, thank you.

Matt, you're right. Goldsboro is an expensive habit but well worth it. There's something about first editions that I can't resist.

Tim Stretton said...

Nuffink new to add to this. Well done to David and Daniel, two of the good guys!

The death of the independent bookshop is shown to have been exaggerated.

Ellie said...

Congrats, David and Daniel!

Happy 10th! (Which anniversary is #10?--Is that wood, or porcelain, or what...?)

And thanks for all you done for us!

Yes, David and Daniel have supported us through thick and thin. I remember the first book launch...memorable! Happy Anniversary!

Shoes specially made for losing weight are available today and [B][URL=]mbt sandals[/URL][/B] can be quite effective. These shoes have been out for a while and some companies have risen to the top [B]mbt sandals[/B] demonstrated that they can provide a quality product to consumers. One [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] such type of these shoes is the MBT Shoe made by a company called Swiss Masai. In case you [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] did not MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. In this write up we want to take a [U]mbt sneakers[/U] closer look at these special shoes.

The development and idea behind the MBT shoe design is quite [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] interesting. What the shoe attempts to do is structure the shape of the shoe so [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] that it simulates walking on sand. Specifically, the they want to attempt to make it as if you are walking [U]footwear etc[/U] along the natural sand environment of the Masai in Kenya. Sports trainers have known for quite a while now [U]mbt sandals[/U] that working out on dry sand is a great way to get in excellent cardiovascular condition. As you [U]MBT shoes[/U] walk on sand it creates an uneven surface on your feet and it forces you to shift your center of gravity to [U]mbt sneakers[/U] an unnatural position. Your body compensates for this by using several different [B]MBT shoes[/B] muscle groups in your feet, calves, thighs, and torso that you would not use wearing typical shoes. This is the ideas [U]MBT[/U] behind the MBT weight loss shoes and it does seem to [B][URL=]buy mbt shoes[/URL][/B] work for some people.

More specifically, MBT makes several positive claims [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] and benefits from wearing their shoes. They will take muscle groups [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] not normally used in walking and make them active. The shoes will give you a better posture, and a more effective [U][B]mbt shoes cheap[/U][/B] gait when walking with or without the shoes. It can [B]mbt sandals[/B] potentially help you with problems you may have with your back, hips, legs, and feet. The [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] shoes can help you recover from injuries to your [B]MBT shoes[/B] tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles. The shoes are also designed to alleviate tension and stress [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] on your lower joints.

Overall owners of the MBT shoe really like the results. [B]mbt sandals[/B] It is typical that if you walk for three or four miles at a time for several times [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] per week you will experience some weight loss. Some people are using them for every day [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] use and find that this helps to keep their legs toned and looking nice. These are just walking [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] shoes you really do not want to use them for running. It is recommended that you go to a store and try them on, as you [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] want to make sure the heel is snug and fits correctly. If the shoes fit correctly they should feel snug and it should [B]MBT shoes[/B] feel as though you are walking on stilts when you walk in [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] them.
