Yes Money number one and Thailand fever still up there, also A woman of Bangkok by Jack Reynolds Thai kiss and Thai Lottery by Matt Carrell, also William Peskett have hit the shelves, If you can't stand the fun stay out of the go go, Mango and sticky rice etc.

Two of the old favourites Welcome to hell and Damage done still good reads, John Burdett, Christopher G Moore, Dean Barrett also all going well still.

We have Thailand fever I saw in Asia books for sale at 450 baht we sell for 350 = the 50% credit refund, what do Asia books offer, nothing, also have many of the Thailand related books used for a fraction of the new price.

Also the best True crime selection in Thailand as someone told me recently, I guess he had been in every bookshop in Thailand, we have about 1000 true crime books.

 Hello  Dave,    I would like to ask you how some one is to go to your establishment and eat healthy with all the smokers eating right next to you. I have been for breakfast three times and I don't think I will return.  Second hand smoke is very toxic as you know, and that cancels out anything healthy that might be consumed while breathing it.  I realize that most of your customers could care less about someone elses health cause they have no regard for there own. That is how smokers are , I realize that every time I see cigarette butts thrown inside  the condo where I live  and every where else I walk.    Beachroadlover

Good point Beachroadlover,

 

Dave, do you still have the tables inside I am a non smoker and altho it is pretty much impossible to get away from it in Pattaya.

 

There are a few options, I seem to remember that the tables inside were non smoking ?.

 

I have not been to your cafe /bookshop for some time and am told you have increased your book shelving inside, so maybe you have removed the tables.

 

Clearly there is always the take away option Not a bad one IMO go sit on the beach and watch the world go by.

Apologies for this, yes agreed it can be off putting but I am sure if you had mentioned this to the guy/s smoking they would have stopped allowing you to eat your breakfast, had I been there and you mentioned it I would have certainly asked them to wait for you to finish.

Regards Dave

Yes the table inside is non smoking. I do find though as a non smoker with the fans going just above the tables at the front is not so bad, not like being inside in a stuffy place.

Thanks Dave,

 

I dont actually read a lot of Military fact or fiction, all good reading but after 30 years in the job I have more than sufficient memories good and bad to remind me of my time in the job.

 

In fact I could commission a book It would be very entertaining but would probably get me locked up.

 

Yes Songkran is here , I actually like it if you plan well ( to keep things dry)  and accept you are going to get wet then you will have a great time.

 

Thai g with wet shirts come on guys what more do you need !!!!.

 

Yes don't drive bikes or cars unless you really need to, get the BB don't use the MBT or just walk.

 

Have fun I will.

 

Best regards

A guy came in today and got the Ump, he said he had seen us on Addicts forum so he is a member, so he was looking through the Thailand related books, he asked me where he could find Damage done, I showed him and he saw the price was 300baht.

He said his pal got one here for 160baht, I told him it would have been a used copy, he said he would have a used copy, I looked on the shelves and told him we did not have a used copy at the moment, he said he may as well go to Asia books if he had to buy a used copy, I told him a new copy in Asia books was about 395 baht and they don't offer 50% credit refund as we do.

He walked off mumbling away, can't please some people, anyway if that was you if you read this try to imagine asking me to save you a used copy for later or that we are still cheaper than the big stores + we offer 50% credit on all books bought from us, new or used.

I offered him a choice of another couple of books on the subject that we had as used but no he didn't want either.
