Alfie’s Christmas Gift Suggestion


Got a few quid to spare? Want to get that alternative Chrizzy pressie for that special pal? Then may I suggest you invest in a few copies of editor Tim Worstall’s excellent round up of the British blogging world in 2005.

‘Blogged 2005 – dispatches from the blogosphere’ is the year as seen through the eyes of bloggers – all the big subjects of the year are there - described in full by the army of blog in a sometimes humorous, sometimes cynical, sometimes analytical way. I went and got a copy from a branch of Waterstone’s in Southport – and it was the last one in the shop. The assistant reckoned there had been a bit of a run on them – and knowing the bohemian folk of Southport like I do – they know a book-cred bargain when they see one. You’d better get one while you can - and take my tip, go to a big bookshop. Waterstone’s was the 6th I’d tried – and at the second one, I was asked what a ‘blogged’ was. Or you could go here at Amazon – and get a few quid knocked off.

Thanks for the tip-off. I've added it to my wish-list.

Anyone we know inside?

How does he get round the copyright?

Alfie, do you get a mention?

Roger B - Yes, there are a few recognisable bloggers therein.
Shooting parrots - It's given freely just for the book.
Snafu - No comment.

Alfie, sorry, it wasn't a catch question!

Unlike you, I've visited many bookshops looking for someone who stocks it but without success, so it's now on my Amazon wishlist.
