image for Bookshop Has Closed, Leaving Man Flabbergasted And Morose
What of the stock?

A secondhand bookshop that was the only one in the area, has closed down for good, making a man sad in the process.

The somewhat oddly-named 'Smiling Sky Bookshop', in Battambang, was a first-rate outlet for readers of fusty old books whose pages had yellowed, and whose covers were sometimes torn. All the pages were there, however.

The shop also doubled as a sort of café, with tea, coffee and fruit juices available, so that a drink could be enjoyed whilst perusing a few potential book buys.

The shop, which stocked about 5,000 books, offered to buy books back from the customer at 50% of the purchase price, once they had been read, and was a firm favorite with the expatriate community in the city.

Moys Kenwood, 55, was flabbergasted at the bookshop's sudden closure, and said:

"I'm flabbergasted at the bookshop's sudden closure, and sad. It's a shame. But all I really want to know is, what have they done with all the books?""

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
