Desiderata, T.E. Lawrence Listing
Desiderata: A Selection of T.E. Lawrence related items.
“Something that is desired, needed or wanted…”
Once again we are issuing a listing of what we trust are items of some interest relating to T.E. Lawrence or T.E. Shaw as he was known from 1923.
It remains a fact that interest in T.E. Lawrence continues unabated assisted by his wide range of interests which covered many fields: archaeology, fine printing, Middle-Eastern affairs, all things mechanical be they aircraft, motorcycles or motorboats and, of course, literature and the arts. We have listed some aspects of these here but with T.E. no listing can be complete, as the range is extensive. If you are seeking something not listed do please contact us as we might just have it available.

Children's Book Section
Rickaro Bookshop is celebrating a grant from a renowned crime writer.
We were delighted to be given an award from the international author James Patterson Independent Bookshop Grants. This was to revamp the children’s section. This has now been done, using local businesses, with stunning results. This has made a tremendous difference to the appearance and friendly atmosphere of the shop.

Tilly has now settled into the bookshop routine well. She has thrived in her new home and as her condition has improved she has grown a nice curly coat and now looks fully the part as a Welsh Collie should. We can see that she feels that she has fallen on her paws and appears to be enjoying her new life. At Rickaro Books she can often be found sleeping under the desk, so if she makes an occasional bark at a customer she certainly means no harm and soon makes customers and their visiting dogs welcome. Sox of course still leaves a gap, but Tilly has added a different character to our business.
