And then there’s always a need for reading matter, of which there’s a local comic book supplier called Refuge BD. BD means bande dessinée, translating to English as ‘comic’ or ‘graphic novel’.
Comic or graphic novel then, I watched my favorite comic book wife-husband couple Aline Kominsky and Robert Crumb give an interview recently and they label their work as ‘comics’.
Whichever your bent, a new release I just got is the newest, volume 5, of Raid Sattouf’s biography l’arab du futur. It charts in pictorial dialogue his childhood living between Lebanon, Syria and France. Picking this up made me a happy chappie (check the blog pic).
Just released, the first Thursday of November 2020, this counts then as a click and collect in support of a local business in my neighborhood.
Sidenote: Thankfully, France has embraced the whole ‘click and collect’ approach for locals to easily support the local businesses. And another great asset to my neighborhood also doing click and collect is record shop Music Avenue.
The golden 1km rule: as a geographic limitation it means that click and collect is restricted to within a 1km radius of your home. Should the police stop-and-zap your barcode, and see you’ve gone beyond the 1km boundary of home, you risk being served an on-the-spot €150 fine.
