I was just strolling along to my favourite coffee shop, which happens to be above my favourite book shop, (what is it about books and cofffee that go so well together?), when I came across a very long queue of people. They were patiently waiting around midday and by the look of some, many had been there for far longer…

When I arrived at the now guarded entrance to the book shop, I realised what the fuss was all about.
