A Book Barge Returns To London's Canals

Calling all book fans! The/A Book Barge (literally, a bookshop on a barge) is moored on the Grand Union Canal, east of the Angel entrance, for the next two weeks. Edit: due to the comment below, we're not sure whether this is the same slow-roaming biblioboat that has gathered acres of press and it's a good sign when Lee Rourke, author of The Canal – love letter to slowing down and taking stock – is a fan, or a different one. If there are two in existence, that's pretty mad. But also excellent.
