David Willetts, bookbuyer
Good morning and thank you to David Willetts – the Conservative MP for Havant in the UK and the shadow secretary of state for innovation, universities and skills.
Saturday’s Financial Times interviewed several public figures about their internet use and here’s what David had to say…..
Where do you shop online and what do you buy?
I buy lots of books online, mainly second-hand through AbeBooks (www.abebooks.com). Although I still do go into second-hand bookshops, I buy many more second-hand books now than I use to. Also, although it isn’t strictly speaking shopping (because I haven’t booked anything with them yet), a site I often look at is SwimTrek.com. I’m a very keen long-distance and outdoor swimmer and I find looking at it very encouraging.
