Web Line — Tony Rogers
Discover Yourself with Reading — John Scott Cree

"Interior decoration and customer safety aside, however, I dare say such places serve a useful purpose, particularly for the hard-up teenager buying dad a birthday present. Provided of course that the latter doesn’t mind getting a screwdriver that’ll fall apart the second he applies torque to it. And as for Mother’s Day — well, it’s every girl for herself. ('What am I to do with all these doilies?')"
Mary Bennet — Jennifer Paynter
Part 7 of our serialised novella
