Book Clearance: Part Deux



I know you are probably thinking not more books, but we decided to visit one last time, as the shop was finally shutting it’s doors today.

We went for a £5 bag and managed to (somehow) fill it with 15 more books!
Yes madness. I am aware I really didn’t need any more books, but I couldn’t resist such an offer.



We picked out between us a book about the Royal Family, a Chocolate Recipe book, a book about the Sun, a Movie companion and a Ways to Recycle book.

And then of course I went of on a tangent and managed to pick a rather random, but fabulous selection…



I was thrilled to see this: The Romance of Hats book, filled with glorious photographs and images. It has such a lovely nostalgic feel to it.
Equally this Traditional Shops book makes for an interesting glimpse into some beautiful and classic shops.



I have wanted a Japanese manga book for such a long time. I am fascinated by the covers and the way the book is read back to front.



These two ended up in the bag mainly because I liked the covers, I know I shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but it was a clearance after all!



A Whales and Dolphins fact book, this one is inspired by a book I have just finished reading, so that was a nice coincidence.
And a Fairy Charms book full of mysterious words and drawings.

My bookshelf may be overflowing but I just couldn’t resist such a clearance, and to think all this lot cost £5, working out roughly at around just over 30p each!

  9. That hat book looks absolutely fascinating. For 30p each you can't go wrong can you? Even if the books turn out to be rubbish it's still cheaper than even charity shop prices.

  19. When I was in Tokyo I managed pick up some cute Manga books for a hundred Yen.. which worked out at about seventy pence each! I chose ons with some cute pink illustrations on the front, but when I got home and translated the title, I realised it was about a weird relationship between a girl and her teacher... oops. Lovely blog btw :) xxx
