A review of 50 first experiences

First 48 – ‘invested’ in a bookshop

Leave a comment

30 May – This year I keep hearing about bookshops, pubs and other community places offering shares – what a great idea, especially during a recession. So, inspired by Lucy Mangan I went onto the website of Bookbarn in Bristol and joined crowdcube to make my investment. To be honest, I didn’t invest much at all (recession, and all that) but I rather like that feeling of being an investor/shareholder – especially in a bookshop.  Now, all I’ve got to do is visit the place and buy a book.

I turned 50 in June and have decided to write about some of the new experiences that happen to me over the next 12 months, not in a show-off way, but to remind myself (and any others that access this) that new experiences happen in all shapes and sizes. I suppose I'm looking at ways to remind myself of the positives. I'm also hoping this will spark off taking steps in a few different directions - what, I don't yet know.
