Tiverton Books by the Oval Bandstand open when at Farmers Market

Sunday is the summer fair on Oval Lawns with classic cars, clog dancing & a man with an organ hmmm sounds  like one for the diary. If you are visiting the Farmers Market pop across the road and visit Tiverton Books down the steps at the Smiths Court Hotel
I noticed from Smiths Court Hotel website that the only thing they overlook is the sea, but on Sunday I have to disagree they will be looking at the Farmers Market and a classic car show a clog dancing man with an organ plus Uncle Tom Cobley and all. Just realised next door to Smiths Court Hotel is another of Margates great Hotels the Blues Brothers Themed Malvern Guest House.
While I am turning this into  a Hotel Blog post I feel I should mention the Walpole Bay Hotel I have had dealings with the Walpole for years and can recomend them whole heartedly


  1. At the risk of stating the obvious, I would use Tiverton books more often if they were open more often!
    There IS another 2nd hand book shop in Margate Old Town but it seems more into vinyl records and rarely opens much before 11 and seemingly, never on Mondays.
    The Old Bank Bookshop by Margate Piazza has reduced its book stock by 75% and given space over to bric-a-brac as you would expect from a hospice shop with the most complex till that no volunteers seem capable of using!
    At last ... Hooked on Books, newly arrived from Dover has opened opposite Sands Hotel in Margate High Street.
    It sells books. It has good stock! It opens during normal shop hours! Now THAT'S the way to run a business.

  2. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Asta Kaliya Lila Version 1
    -8 verses describing Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

    Asta Kaliya Lila Version 2
    -A slightly different version of 8 verses that describes Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:
