Quick! Quick! The click of a mouse!
Order your copy online!
It’s the latest bestseller that everyone’s got,
With sparkly gold words on the spine.
But now take a wander, a stroll and a wonder,
Set off for a walk down the street,
Go browse in the bookshop and make some new friends
And who knows what new books you might meet.
There are books that are famous with five-star reviews,
Among them unsung ones, obscure ones – you choose!
Books that you’ve heard of and ones that you’ve missed,
And books that you’d never have thought would exist.
Go in to get one book, then pick up another,
A gift for your neighbour, a tome for your mother,
A novel, biography, children’s books too,
Or a book that you’ll read when you’re sat on the loo.
The staff are all friendly (they’re not like computers),
They’ll know just the book that you need.
So don’t go online; pop on down to your bookshop
Whenever you want a good read.
