Miscellaneous index

This is a by no means comprehensive index of bookshops I've visited.

Instead it's a random collection of themes that I'll update according to whim, meaning it won't always be as up to date as other indexes and may accidentally leave out a bookshop from a particular heading (feel free to give me a nudge if that's the case). For a full list of bookshops see the Alphabetical index.
