As title says, was on way home when we seen all these cars and a sign saying Book Sale.

Books were 50p each!!!

They had some really really new books, some completely unread ones and old ones. All the proceeds were going to a charity for Indian children.
I was in there for about an hour. Dragged Dp and Ds round.
In the end I walked out with about £20 worth of books for me, DS got a few Beatrix Potter books. DP got some programming books, hes not a reader.

It was brill.

Oh forgot to say Thanks TwoIfBySea. Your boys look very cute also. grin

Wow...I'd be green with envy if I didn't have bags and bags of books from the last 2 car boots I went to. 3 or 4 books for a pound and all like new. Problem is now getting to read the blighters!!!

Hope you have more luck than me

'The Little Friend' is not good I'm afraid. 'Tis Charming Man' is quite good though - I have just finished it and it dod surprise me in places. Marion Keyes is not bad for chick-lit.

TwoIfBySea Sun 16-Aug-09 21:05:15

Great selection, you got an absolute bargain there. I read The Point of Rescue recently and it was quite good. Feel really bad at having you list them all blush.

KnickKnack Sun 16-Aug-09 21:13:14

Brill selection of books...very jealous! I obviously live in the wrong part of Ireland

AntdamnTheDM Wed 19-Aug-09 22:40:20

I don't mind listing them all.

Knickknack - I'm up in the NW (ish) forgive me I'm from Scotland


Have read 6 so far. Am reading two at the moment <trying to keep myself busy before launching into new moon and eclipse>

KnickKnack Wed 19-Aug-09 22:42:55

Ohh I am in the right part!
