Save London’s Only Floating Bookshop

A few months back we posted story about London’s only floating bookshop Word on the Water. The terrific secondhand shop, moored on the Regent’s Canal in west London, is facing an existential threat from the Canal & River Trust which is planning to evict the popular bookshop and hand over the mooring site to a property developer. You can show support for Chris Screech and his crew by visiting the Change.org site and signing this petition.
