An ideal virtual shopfront


Sir, – The idea of the virtual shopfront (Weekend Review, October 12th) was intriguing, but the execution was disappointingly mundane.

I’d enjoy a book shopfront with Eileen Battersby behind the till, a champagne reception in the poetry section, and a small, angry mob in the corner trampling down the premature display of Christmas decorations. – Yours, etc,
