Waterstones is buying Foyles and bookshops in London will never be the same again. The world of publishing is shooketh.
@lizzycampbell hmmmmm I was pretty fucked off by them opening a store in Edinburgh like 5 min from the existing nice indie store
@adrianhon I'm not sure how I feel about Waterstones, Hatchards, Foyles and Daunts all being under the remit of the same person. And combined with the recent acquisition of W by a hedge fund, there are interesting times ahead.
@adrianhon that said, Hatchards has remained Hatchards, in branding at least (I don't go in very often so can't speak as to atmosphere).
