In a little under 2 weeks the £1500 target for the crowd fund was hit, then some more came in. I was contacted by the Crowd Funder people who said "This is the best crowd fund ever in the history of crowd fund" (I possibly over reacted there) but anyway, they encouraged me to go for double. So I did! The extra money raised will go towards more events, more bookcases, joining the Booksellers Association and just a general set up of the shop. They even featured me on their blog right HERE in which they call me enterprising. I KNOW! I've updated the Crowd-O-Meter (which they lovingly called) and it looks like this.
There are only 2 DAYS LEFT to pledge. If we manage to get to £3000 then I'll host a big party just for pledgers with music, food, drink and more. There are a few new pledges added too. You can get a slice of the action by going to: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/TheBigComfyBookshop/ Please pledge, pledge some more, then share with the world. Michael
