Titbit of trivia

I heard an interesting little factoid on the telly news tonight;

New Zealand has more bookshops per capita than any other country,
around one for every 7500 people.

A most astounding (and pride inducing) piece of trivia!

(The story this comes from can be found here and is about international best selling author Lee Childs' fears for the future of the book industry - and in particular, author's livelihoods - in the wake of the rising popularity of e-books).
