Book signing by local author John Hardy: John Hardy will be selling signed copies of his books at the rescheduled Nerja Residents Day on Sunday 31st March 12 – 5 pm at the Plaza de España (unless the day is cancelled due to bad weather). He will have copies of the recently published book ‘Driven by Conflict’, a collection of stories about people involved in conflicts of many and various kinds, from the domestic to the international. Some of the stories are bleak, as stories of war and hostilities often are, whilst others are much lighter and even of a humorous nature. Many of them are romances and love stories. The conflicts and wars which are behind the stories range in time from 1000 BC up until the present day. They take place mainly in Europe and the Middle East and the majority are events that involve Great Britain, Spain and Israel, and the hostilities that they were involved in.
All his other books will also be available, including books of short stories of crime and mystery, some set in the Axarquía. Some of these have been translated into Spanish and German.
For more information on all his books, visit www.johnhardybooks.com or

“Pippa Paws” charity shop in Nerja: A few days ago I came across the “Pippa Paws” charity shop in Nerja and I wondered how on earth I had never heard people talk about it. Perhaps because it is on a street one would not normally pass by. However, it is not at all difficult to find and is only half a minute from the main bus-stop/station, in a little street at the back of the Notaria. As I entered I thought…. Wow! There are wonderful curiosities, some interesting clothes, and comfortable chairs in which to sit whilst browsing books etc. I came away delighted with my purchases and will certainly visit again.
Open Monday/Wednesday/Friday – 10.30am to 2pm, Calle Antonio Jimenez 4
