On the way back from yesterday’s intercambio, I stopped off at a bookshop that sells exclusively English language books to browse through its fiction and non-fiction stacks. However, unlike Waterstone’s, Borders and W H Smith's etc in the UK, bookshops here sell relatively obscure titles (presumably for an aging expat clientele. After all, the main English-language newspaper for Andalucia is full of ads for hearing aids, residential homes and funeral plans).

So for any current titles - including my own psychological suspense novel,The De Clerambault Code - you’ve no alternative but to purchase all your fiction and non-fiction online from Amazon. Plus, of course, all the considerable shipping costs. But worth every last euro - if you don’t want to be thinking, that is, about organising that funeral plan right now
