WITH CHRISTMAS APPROACHING, we are planning several rail journeys into Waterford where we will browse The Book Centre. We need pencils for notes to Santa, coffee because that's what you have with brownies, and we want to get lost in the book shelves. I'm reminded of all these things after seeing Dermot Nolan return from a recent trip (see photo).
