Updates17th March 2020. Amazingly I've now managed to get access back to my home page so, while I've been able to upload books, I haven't been able to update this page. Please find today's update below
Just an update on the next few weeks (or 12 if that's how long Boris decides I have to be protected because of my underlying health issues ...). I have already been social distancing for the last week or so and am washing my hands like Lady Macbeth.
So, how will it work so I can still get books to my lovely customers and Gill Bilski Books doesn't go bankrupt in the meantime? Everything is subject to change as situations change, of course.
I have enough books for sale and waiting to be listed to last a millennium so, don't panic, I shall not run out of books. I shall also try to update my website more often.
The only problem I can see is posting the books. I can post in postboxes at night, like a ninja, up to a certain thickness and bigger parcels at the sorting office where there's a glass screen between them and me. What I can't do, except in exceptional cases, is post at the Post Office because it's nearly always busy and there's no specific time when it's almost empty. But I'm sure these things can be worked through as and when they happen and I shall take the hit if parcels go missing as I won't have proof of posting for those sent via postboxes.
Oh, and a bit of good news, I've almost finished a new catalogue which I'm sure I can make work somehow!!
Wishing you all the best of health and hope that you stay safe and well.
17th March 2020 Gill finally got back ftp access to the home page after 2 years. Books have been updated all that time, but this page hasn't. My new site is still being worked on ...
