Yes - I agree, but I can only get to bookshops at weekends, and sometimes if
I'm busy doing other stuff it may be 2 or 3 weeks between visits. And, for
example, this book I'm looking for is not available in Windsor or Slough
(though I've noticed over the years that the computing sections are getting
much bigger and better), so I'm forced to go up to That London. So online
purchases that arrive at my door the next day are very attractive.

Sometimes I'll browse in bookshops for a whole afternoon, and then I think I
should perhaps have spent the time actually reading!
